    Default Cant Mount NTFS with read/write permissions

    Hi all

    I have been trying hard to get write permissions for my ntfs drives. I have used following commands with root permissions but got the same message every time. "Permission denied"

    linux-3r2b:/etc # /dev/sda1 /home/vipin/Cdrive ntfs-3g user,users,gid=users,umask=0002 0 0
    -bash: /dev/sda1: Permission denied

    I have modified fstab file and put the new values as:
    fmask=113
    dmask=002

    But im still not able to mount my drives as i want (write permissions). Also guide me regarding how ntfs configration tool is used. Any help would be appreciated...
    Thanks

    That's the syntax when you put a line in the stored text file fstab to automatically mount the drive at boot time.

    The syntax for mounting temporarily from the command line is a bit different, like this:
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs-3g  /dev/sda1 /path_to/mount_point
    That one is writeable'

    I think you're looking for a line for fstab too that works. Try this one:
    Code:
    /dev/sda1    /path_to/mount_point    ntfs-3g    defaults    0 0
    The will make it writeable.

    Thanks swerdna

    after writing mounting commands in a script and copying that script to /etc/init.d/, I got my ntfs drives automatically mounted at system startup.

    That's an unusual approach. Well thought out.
