View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mount NTFS partiton permanently
February 22nd, 2009, 10:40 AM
I know I have done it before, but I'm searching through my old threads and can't find a solution...:(
How can I mount my NTFS partition permanently. I just reinstalled Windows and I'm confused...again.

wow - you are fast. I have done the NTFS tools thing. After restart drive was still unmounted again.
thanks for the link

I may be wrong about this, so don't use it unless someone verifies that it's correct.
I had a problem getting mounts to stay after a reboot too, but we fixed it, and I'm not very good with keeping understandable notes.
As in, when the writing cools down I can no longer read it, hi hi.....
It seems like (and I hope somebody fills in the blanks here)
I had to in terminal type
chmod 644 .dmrc
chmod 700 /home/user (user is your user name of course)
We also made a change of some type in FStab, but I just looked and didn't find it anymore, since we now use a data file server instead of individual drives scattered around the place.

thank you. You know - I got it going before with an entry in fstab - and that really puzzled me - as me thinking cools down - similar to your writing...;)
However - somehow I got it right - with a little help from people here - to id my NTFS drive - checked that with what I had in my fstab - changed sdb1 to sdb2 et voilá - it worked. Partition got itself a new name after reformating with XP....little things one (well I anyway) doesn't think about as soon as necessary. Need to get more "streetwise" in a Ubuntu kind of way, I guess.
But as long as you guys are here to back me up - I'll be just fine.
