Save files on Windows harddrive

Hello All,

I’ve got a dual OS of WinXP and openSUSE 10.2. I can read files on the Windows partitions, but can not edit or save files on those partitions. Is there any easy way to do this? Thanks a lot!


On 10.2 ntfs-3g is the way to go for this. It’s the most stable and offers good performance.

Have a look here on how to install on 10.2 : NTFS - openSUSE

10.3 and up have the read/write support built in.


Thank you for your advice. I followed the NTFS website you showed me and have got through the first steps smoothly. But after I changes an entry as below:

/dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs-3g user,users,gid=users,umask=0002 0 0

I still can’t save or edit files on those windows partitions, either with my normal user or with the root. Does this mean I have to do any other changes beyond this point?

Thank you very much for your advice. I’ve get every thing through following the NTFS website you showed me. :slight_smile:

Good to hear that & you’re welcome :wink:
