    sYs^: You may be hitting a known ntfsprogs limitation, that is, it currently cannot delete/create on 100% of the requests.

    Try deleting single files and see if it will succeed. If some work and others don't, then there's nothing to do other than wait for a newer version of ntfsprogs, I'm affraid.

    Yes, you can use Captive (as suggested by muzaki earlier).

    I have not tested it, and it isn't in the Ubuntu repositories.
    Check the website: http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/

    It works by emulation of a windows enviroment and loading native MS libraries to access the ntfs disks (you'll have to get these libraries yourself, from your windows installation). It should work 100% of the time, as it is actually just emulating the part of windows itself that deals with ntfs access, and, as such, I would guess it is a bit slower.

    Wow, worked like a charm. Followed your great tutorial and rebooted. Fantastic. That has fixed one of my problems dual booting!

    I originally tried Captive, but it takes a very new kernel and Breezy just does not have it yet (I am too scared to try compiling my own ).

    Thanx for the great how-to.

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    It seemed to work at first but I found out that I can only create new files or directories if I delete an existing one. What coul it be. Ntfs-progs limitation?

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    I would guess so, tho I don't really know for sure.

    You could try informing the developers of your problems at the ntfsprogs forums, mailing-lists, or even report a bug at the package launchpad page.

    Re: HOWTO: Mount NTFS volumes with write support

    Here's what i get:

    Code:
    paul@thumpa:~$ sudo modprobe fuse && sudo mount -a
    fusermount: failed to access mountpoint /media/hda1: No such file or directory
    fuse_mount failed.
    Unmounting:

    Here is my fstab in case it helps:

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
    /dev/hda2       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
    /dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    /dev/hdd        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    /dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
    /dev/hda1 /media/hda1 ntfs-fuse auto,gid=1001,umask-0002 0 0
    Thanks for your help, I'm supposed to be recovering a load of stuff on an NTFS drive for a customer. Don't know what I'd do without you guys.

    As it says, you need to create the directory for mounting the drive to:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/hda1
