    Default How to make file executable?

    I keep my XP virtual disk on a separate ntfs partition. Normally if I add
    Code:
    # Entry for /dev/sdb2 :
    UUID=1F4D93145B084DAB /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
    to fstab the disk mounts as executable and I'm able to use the disk in VB but for some reason it's not executable.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    try users,gid=users,fmask=002,dmask=002 instead of default

    Thanks for the reply.

    I kept the same entry in fstab but I changed the fstab options to defaults in the partitioner and that fixed it.
