    Default cant get ntfs working

    hi

    i used to mount my windows partition like this:

    sudo mkdir /mnt/windows
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows -o rw
    chown MY_USERNAME /mnt/windows

    and that about did it.
    but when i try it this time (after a fresh opensuse install) it still says permission denied. and when i go look for the folder with konqueror, the folder's got a lock icon on it.

    how do i do this? i really need to backup my data (windows crash-AGAIN)

    ok im guessing theres probably something wrong because i didnt cleanly unmount my windows partition (as i said, it crashed)

    but i cant get it to boot so i can cleanly unmount! (gives bluescreen and people say "just run recovery and do CHKDSK /P and FIXBOOT but all those command say is that the volume is unrecoverable, however i used to be able to just use linux to get into windows when it used to crash)

    what do i do now???

    You should be able to mount it using Yast's partitioner. Or add a mountpoint to /etc/fstab looking like this:
    /dev/disk/by-id/THE_DISK_ID_ON_YOUR_MACHINE /windows/C ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

    Then again, the Windows install might be seriously damaged. If not, mounting it like this should let you copy the data you need off of it.

    and if Knurpht's method doesn't work, try changing the option/word
    Code:
    defaults
    to two options/words
    Code:
    force,defaults
