    Thanks givre.

    I was having troubles with Windows before I installed Linux.
    Everything works fine now.

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

    sry, i am a noob in linux and i have a problem getting ntfs-3g to work.

    fstab:

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
    # /dev/hda1
    UUID=4858096a-94ad-47ad-a4a5-76c21c3e4329 /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # /dev/hda5
    UUID=8c647fb0-f7ed-40ac-a6a3-036db2f0a514 none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/hdd        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
    /dev/           /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
    
    /dev/sda1    /media/XP    ntfs-3g    defaults,locale=en_US.utf8    0    0
    
    /dev/hdb1    /media/Daten ntfs  nls=utf8,umask=0222 0    0
    with read-only ntfs it works -> hdb1

    sudo fdisk -l | grep NTFS:

    Code:
    /dev/hdb1   *           1       14593   117218241    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda1   *           1       30401   244196001    7  HPFS/NTFS
    when i try to mount sda1 (sudo mount -a) the following message appears:
    Code:
    fusermount: mount failed: No such device
    Failed to create FUSE mount point.
    Retry to create FUSE mount point ...
    fusermount: mount failed: No such device
    Failed to create FUSE mount point.
    Unmounting /dev/sda1 (System)
    i am using ubuntu edgy amd64.

    thx

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

    I'm also having problems with ntfs-3g. there are times when I boot that Ubuntu (Dapper) will do a force check disk because it says that the previous session failed to unmount my drives properly. It will fail to check the drives then when Ubuntu loads, I can't see my NTFS drives. Not only that, it also reverts to the default theme and wallpaper. For now, what I do is I restore my Ubuntu using Norton Ghost to correct the problem, but unfortunately this thing keeps happening often so I need an alternative solution. Please help. I want to be able to boot with linux as often as possible but this problem is preventing me from doing such thing.

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

    Actionhank, did you try to reboot ?

    iampoch, ubuntu force check of partitions every 30 times, but it check only ext3 drive (and you can specify which one), it can't check for the moment ntfs device. If your ntfs device don't mount, it's probably for an other reason. Also if the ntfs device don't mount correctly, it's obvious that if you selected a wallpaper on that partition, it will not be able to load it.
    I think doing a ghost wasn't necessary.
    If it's happens again, simply try to mount it via the terminal,
    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    and past here the error it gives if you don't know what to do.

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

    2 questions:

    Question 1) I have 2 drives one being an ide, the other a sata.

    Looks like the ide is picked up as NTFS, while the sata is SFS? Both of these drives are coming from a windows box, so I don't understand the SFS file system. Is this something for sata drives in particular perhaps?

    here's my fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/hdb: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hdb1 1 30401 244196001 7 HPFS/NTFS

    Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 30401 244196001 42 SFS <-- this is odd eh?


    Question 2)

    I have ntfs-3g installed via the sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g after adding the specified repositories.

    made my mountpoints:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/download /mnt/download2

    and here's my /etc/fstab
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda1 / 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/hdb1 /mnt/download ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/download2 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

    When I reboot nothing is found in the mountpoints (even as root).

    I'm thinking that it might just be easier to go and buy another hard drive and copy everything via network. Much thanks to anyone with a helpful hint/suggestion.

    I have the same problem here on a 120G partition. Is this a confirmed problem? While I try to copy large files, ntfs-3g seems to take much CPU time! Copying files to my ntfs-3g partition is really, really slow!

    Oh! Another detail! The problem is when copying big files with Nautilus. If I use a terminal, there is no problem! Any idea?
