Thread: NTFS updates allowed?

    Default NTFS updates allowed?


    I had an idea that with 11.1 I would be able to add, update and delete
    files in a Windows NTFS partition. I can see the files and access them
    but that is all.

    Am I missing something or was I mistaken?

    (I can update them OK as long as they are on a different machine)

    Actually.. you are missing something by default. You need to add the
    'umask=0002' option to the mount point entry.

    Easiest way to do is starting up Partitioner, selecting the ntfs
    partition and hit the *edit* button, then hit the fstab button and add
    *umask=0002* to the Arbitary option value field, it's a comma seperate
    list so you need to add *,umask=0002*.

    More info can be found on 'NTFS - openSUSE'
    (http://en.opensuse.org/NTFS) including how to manually edit the fstab
    file (easier to let Partitioner do it for you though)

    Yes! That worked perfectly.

    Is there a list of 100 things every beginner needs to know? This should
    be on it!

    Many thanks.

    'HOWTOs - openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/HOWTOs) is the closest thing
    to it afaik, NTFS link is listed among them.

    Stickie for newbies. 'NEWBIES - Suse-11.1 Pre-installation –
    PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums' (http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9) (see NTFS
    under openSUSE link).

    The problem is most newbies won't look at the link !

    They are flooded with the many things they must read. Its like they
    are incredibly thirsty, and they have a fire hose of information thrust
    at them, and they really do have to drink a lot. But they can't drink
    enough, as they turn away from the fire hose due to its high volume.
    And that is understandable - realistically, who can drink out of a fire
    hose?
