View Full Version : [other] write to NTFS
December 6th, 2012, 06:39 PM
Anyone know how to get linux to write to a HDD with a NTFS filesystem? I'm sure I saw a Linux box writing to NTFS before, it was running Samba, and Apache... OS was on its own flash memory, with a hard disk in NTFS for mass storage...

Install then run ntfs-config. Tick on the boxes 'enable read' , 'enable write'.

Are you having it automount through fstab? If you are post the output of the following command:
cat /etc/fstabIf you want it to please post the output of this command:
sudo blkid -c /dev/null
I'm sure I saw a Linux box writing to NTFS before, it was running Samba, and ApacheThat's an entirely different question. Are you talking about writing to a samba share of an ntfs partition located on a Linux box or accessing an ntfs partition on a Windows box.
I guess this boils down to I don't understand the nature of the problem since I don't know where this ntfs partition is located and how you are trying to write to it..
