    Default Partition ntfs

    Dear All,
    As nomal "user" I have no access, not even read, to my windows ntfs partitions.
    I can see their name but (for instance C) but not what inside is.
    With the tool partitioner, the partition is shown as "mounted".
    Can naone tell me why ?

    Many thanks in advance

    Because NTFS is a journalled filesystem and if you write to a journalled filesystem when the journal is not running you risk corruption.

    Basically openSUSE is protecting users from their own ignorance and assuming that root knows what s/he is doing.

    Dear John and caf4926,
    I cant even read the content of the folders.
    I have got to re-install my suse after a problem of graphic drivers corruption.
    The read of these files was ok before.
    I don't know what changed.
    The use of partitioner shows the partitions are mounted.
    Why cant I read them ?

    Many thanks in advance

    If you are re-installing you better get back to us after that. But during install remember to set mount points for your M$ partitions it makes it a bit easier.

    You will need to edit /etc/fstab as the links I gave show.

    It will help if you open a su terminal and do

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    and post the result

    He said his ntfs partition were mounted. I assume he wants to copy his mounted ms files to his newly installed Osuse ext3 home. Why does everyone speak in cli, why does all Global Moderators always fallback in CLI. Whats wrong with GUI speak? What is your desktop KDE or Gnome.

    In the meantime, I ran winxp to check if there was a problem with the partitions. Nothing at all. I came back in suse the partitions are now readable
    Just don't know what happened.
    Thank You anyway
