Thread: change permissions in NTFS volumes

    Default change permissions in NTFS volumes


    I'm trying to make my NTFS volumes writable by the chmod command.

    Code:
    --------------------
    sudo chmod -R 777 /media/songs
    --------------------

    But this doesn't seem to work. The owner is root, but isn't the above
    command supposed to work? Please help.

    IIRC you should set write permissions in your fstab, and not by directly
    chmodding them. Anyway, I may be wrong - the thing to make sure is, you
    have to have the ntfs-3g driver, the plain-vanilla ntfs driver is for
    read-only access.

    Expanding on the good advice of JosipBroz, reading material:
