Sorry about the late reply was Valentines
Ok i was having a look at my /etc/fstab and i saw a line saying that my /dev/sda5 was mounted on /media/sda5 with Umask=007. I changed that to 022 saved it and rebooted.
and then restarted the ftp server.
sudo mount -o bind /media/sda5/Stuff /home/FTP-shared/download
I tried connecting with an ftp client again, and guess what, IT WORKED!!
I could access my mounted NTFS drive in the download folder.
But there is a slight problem. Since i have mounted it with the 022 rights I cant even copy anything onto my /media/sda5 partition on my machine.
Is it possible to mount something twice, as in create another line in fstab, using the same UUID as the /dev/sda5, then mount it in lets say for example /media/sda7, but this time using umask=022. Then i can leave the original line (the one with umask=007). using this way i can bind /media/sda7/Stuff onto /home/FTP-shared/download, but at the same time i have write access on the same drive using /media/sda5. In this way i can serve the partition with read access(/media/sda7) but I will have read and write access on my machine (/media/sda5)
Please let me know if it is safe to do so? It was just an idea, makes sense to me but lol, i just wanted to confirm before i tried it.
Thanks again mate
