    Default Cant create folder & files on ntfs external drive

    I have an external hard drive in office,where i copy backup twice a month. it is ntfs formated. One time before i copy file to it,was ok.Just i mount it from partition editor that time.
    but now it is mounted but when i try to create folder on it,file Or copy paste files or folder to it,it cant let me do that. i tried to change permissions and then also try to login as root to do so.
    But no luck, always giving error:
    "Operation not permitted".

    Any one have idea.
    Thanks

    Hmm... Take a look into YaST partitioner.
    Open YaST -> System -> Partitioner ->
    Here select your NTFS partition -> Edit -> Fstab Options -> Arbitrary Option Value -> what you have here?
    I think with parameters like that, it works:
    Code:
    users,gid=users,umask=0002,utf8=true
    ^^ I'm not a partition master, but the most important things here I think the: users and the gid=users.

    It was more important the umask=0002
    It is abhorrent the spiritual greed of those that knowing something, do not seek the transfer of such knowledge.
