    Mount NTFS partiton permanently

    I know I have done it before, but I'm searching through my old threads and can't find a solution...

    How can I mount my NTFS partition permanently. I just reinstalled Windows and I'm confused...again.

    regards

    wow - you are fast. I have done the NTFS tools thing. After restart drive was still unmounted again.

    thanks for the link

    Hi LongTom

    I may be wrong about this, so don't use it unless someone verifies that it's correct.

    I had a problem getting mounts to stay after a reboot too, but we fixed it, and I'm not very good with keeping understandable notes.
    As in, when the writing cools down I can no longer read it, hi hi.....

    It seems like (and I hope somebody fills in the blanks here)
    I had to in terminal type
    Code:
    chmod 644 .dmrc
    and then
    Code:
    chmod 700 /home/user
    (user is your user name of course)

    We also made a change of some type in FStab, but I just looked and didn't find it anymore, since we now use a data file server instead of individual drives scattered around the place.

    Hi Gary,

    thank you. You know - I got it going before with an entry in fstab - and that really puzzled me - as me thinking cools down - similar to your writing...

    However - somehow I got it right - with a little help from people here - to id my NTFS drive - checked that with what I had in my fstab - changed sdb1 to sdb2 et voilá - it worked. Partition got itself a new name after reformating with XP....little things one (well I anyway) doesn't think about as soon as necessary. Need to get more "streetwise" in a Ubuntu kind of way, I guess.

    But as long as you guys are here to back me up - I'll be just fine.

    Greetings
