I am trying to understand some issues I have with a partition that I share with a Windows sistem.
I am dual booting Windows 10 and Opensuse.
I made a hole HD formated in ntfs to share between the two systems.
This way I can put files and and school projects there and access from windows and vice verse.
Yesterday I unpacked a .rar file from Windows which was in that partition ntfs.
Today I noticed I can not move anything or create any folder in that partition from opensuse.
I can only access what is already there, but not add anything.
It is like if windows had somehow owned that partition.
It happened once becore, but in the ocasion I reformated the partition. I would prefer another option if I had one.
The LINUX-NTFS-filesystem-drivers (ntfs, ntfs-3g) cannot repair a NTFS filesystem. They will mount it read-only as soon as they detect any problem with the filesystem. So first check if the filesystem is mounted read-only. If so use MS Windows to test and repair the NTFS filesystem.
I’m not sure whether the ntfs driver offers write support at all. I always use the ntfs-3g driver.
