even in windows cannot write to ntfs partition


I have mounted ntfs partition in Fedore Core 2, it goes fine except no writing right.

but when i return back to windows xp, i also can't wirte to the ntfs partition.

and i found that the owner of all the files and folders became S1-324-3123-234435435 (something like that, i didn't remember the exact name). i can't change the files to write because the windows tell me that "The access is refuesd".

How does it come?

Does anyone has opinions to solve the problem?

It has lost its user pemissions/owner.

right click the root of the drive (in explorer) and choose properties, then the security tab.

from there choose the Advanced button, then click the Add button and choose your user and grant it full control.

then in the owner tab choose your admin account from the list, put a
tick in the 'Replace Owner on subdirs..." and click apply

that should give you Write rights to your drive

If you're running Home, go into safe mode, and log in as the 'Administrator' account. Set permissions to just your account name, or whoever you want.

The Next thing to try is to reset pemissions on all child object

You can find that in the advanced security settings from the ROOT of C:

Put a tick in the box and click apply.

If you Can't do this you are probably using a non-admin account
(which would also explain why you can't change settings).

Thank you
I solved the problem by removing the data on the NTFS partition to a FAT32 partition, format the NTFS to FAT32, finally restore the data.
It's took a lot time, anyway it worked.

And i found it's better to make only one partition shared by Linux and windows, it's more secure.
