Thread: Files in NTFS partition can't be overwriten

    Default Files in NTFS partition can't be overwriten

    I have one partition in ntfs.
    I can create and delete files in this partition.
    But i can't overwrite files, it says permition denied.
    I guess that it has to do something with permissions.
    All files in ntfs partition are with root@plugin permissions.
    What can i do?
