Non ROOT not able to cut / paste files to NTFS partition

Hi there,

I installed OpenSUSE 11.1 x86_64 on my system to make dual boot with Windows Vista Ultimate x86_64.

With ROOT login I can access (cut / paste files to and from) NTFS partitions on my system, however I’m not able to do so through NON ROOT account.

Please help me out.

Thank you veru much.

with best regards,

Madhav V Khadilkar

Please post the contents of

If there is more than one ntfs partition in there, tell us which one you need to have r/rw access to.

Thanks caf4926!

I’ll soon upload the contents of “/etc/fstab”.
However, there are in all 4 NTFS partitions to which I need r/rw access.

If the partitions are added during install they will look something like this:

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST9160827AS_5RF16D1B-part1 /Vista               ntfs-3g    defaults    0 0

If they are not in fstab you can add them as in the tutorial like this:

/dev/sda2    /path_to/mount_point    ntfs-3g    defaults    0 0

Notice the difference!

If they are already listed the only part you need to change is the last part:
ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

You probably have something different at the moment.
