    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    And if it helps any more (sorry about this) I just got the following error message when trying to use ntfs-config through the menu.

    Mounting /media/winxp failed.

    $LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0, 0)
    Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Operation not supported
    Mount is denied because NTFS logfile is unclean. Choose one action:
    Boot Windows and shutdown it cleanly, or if you have a removable
    device then click the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows
    taskbar notification area before disconnecting it.
    Or
    Run 'ntfsfix' on Linux unless you have Vista, then mount NTFS with
    the 'force' option read-write, or with the 'ro' option read-only.
    Or
    Mount the NTFS volume with the 'ro' option in read-only mode.

    Barber - read the list of options in the error message and pick one.

    Thanks.
    Yes I was using nautilus. I tried taking your advice and using the terminal, but it still takes a long time with the CPU using 50%+ (view from conky)

    I give up.. the damned thing still spits out errors.. First time, it was that my ntfs partitions were unclean O_o.. Second time, it was that I was missing the fuse 2.6 modules. NTFS is never ment to be brought over to Linux xD

    If your ntfs is unclean, it's fortunate that it don't mount it read/write. Now the only problem is that there is no chkdsk equivalent in linux, so you have to use windows ones for now.

    fuse module 2.6 is not require, it's just recommended, so it still works with old fuse module.

    This works great! I've been struggling to get rw support for my NTFS drives for awhile using what was available in the Ubuntu repos. Great tutorial! Thanks.

    Just to let you know, I got it working (with a lot of help from the aforementioned friend). My windows partition was "unclean" I ran chkdsk using the Windows CD and it worked ok (after a bit of fiddling around in gedit and the terminal).

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    A few observations I would like to make.

    *Files deleted off the NTFS drive are done so immediatly, like a network drive. So don't expect to remove files out of the trash. Any chance we can get this changed?
    *Sometimes my 2nd NTFS drive doesn't mount. I have to create a new mount point (I'm on my third) and remount it in order for it to work.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for your great help and effort.

    After mount a ntfs partition, the mount command return this:

    Code:
    WARNING: Deficient FUSE kernel module detected. Some driver features are
             not available (swap file on NTFS, boot from NTFS by LILO), and
             unmount is not safe unless it's made sure the ntfs-3g process
             naturally terminates after calling 'umount'. The safe FUSE kernel
             driver is included in the official Linux kernels since version
             2.6.20-rc1, or in the FUSE 2.6.0 or later software packages,
             except the faulty FUSE version 2.6.2. For more help, please
             have a look at /usr/share/doc/ntfs-3g/README.Debian. Thanks
    Anyway, I can perfectly read the NTFS partition

    Congratulations,
    JP

    It's up to the gnome-vfs guys to add this support.
    But you can still use a pseudo trash. When you move things to trash in an NTFS partition, they are not directly deleted, but move to a .trash-<user> directory at the root of the volume.
    *Sometimes my 2nd NTFS drive doesn't mount. I have to create a new mount point (I'm on my third) and remount it in order for it to work.
    Quite strange. Did the device name (/dev/...) changed ? BTW, you don't have to create a new mount point, just adjust your /etc/fstab
    After mount a ntfs partition, the mount command return this:
    If you read the warning until the end, you'll know why. This warning is expected, and needed.
    Good to know that it works for you
