    wasn't there a option in 9.04 to automount? seems like they took it out? yes this is a basic function that should be added to ubuntu.

    ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy)
    Kernel Linux 2.6.24-19 generic
    Gnome 2.22.3
    Memory 1010.0
    Processor Mobile AMD Sempron(tm) 2600+

    My problem...
    this is my /etc/fstab output


    # /dev/sda1
    UUID=3546be51-1749-4833-9cac-c709b79de06c / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    # /dev/sda5
    UUID=f4c05fe8-a243-4387-9081-3763e7f0915b none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 rw, user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw, user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
    /dev/sdb3 /media/sdb3 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdb2 /media/sdb2 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdg1 /media/sdg1 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdh1 /media/sdh1 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdh5 /media/sdh5 ext3 rw,user 0 0
    /dev/sdh6 /media/sdh6 swap defaults 0 0

    When I use pysdm all of the rw,user is defined as default.
    I have jacked around with pysdm and /etc/fstab till I'm about to come uncorked.
    Yes, I have RTFM till I can't bear it any more, and followed the 'step-by-step' on-line how-tos, but to no avail.

    Either way I can read and write to one, but not both usb drives.


    Am I just really dumb, or just missing something???

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Rsync DOESN'T Preserve File Owner & Permission - Using Automounted NTFS backup drive

    Also located here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1568402


    Hi, this is my machine:

    ext4:
    1x 80gb - /boot, /swap, /(root) - sda
    1x 80gb - /home - sdb

    ntfs:
    1x 250gb - /backups - sdc

    1. First of all, I automount sdc /backups via /etc/fstab like this:

    Code:
    /dev/disk/by-label/backups /media/backups ntfs defaults,uid=1000 0 2
    2. Second I use a rsync to backup my /boot/ /(root) and /home

    For example:

    Code:
    rsync --delete -avz /boot /media/backups/boot/
    When I check sdc (my ntfs backup drive), all files in there are 777, whereas it should be 755, and sometimes the owner is me, whereas it should be ROOT.

    As an experiment, I backed up my files NOT in sdc (my ntfs backup drive), but in my /home folder instead, RESULT: every thing is OK, and it preserved file owner & permission!

    Is there something I'm missing here? Is there something I don't understand?

    Please help because I'm learning to BACKUP my system. Thanks for reading, bodhi.

    It's OK, everything we know will become obsolete at some time.

    The problem is ntfs does not understand linux permissions, Make a linux partition to back up to.

    Thank you bodhi!

    Now, I understand, it's a shame I didn't read your whole tutorial, maybe you already NOTED it there?

    Can you make a tutorial for lazy bums? Just kidding.

    No worries. permissions on ntfs or fat partitions are a FAQ and often misunderstood.
