Writing to NTFS drives?


Hi all.

I'm a relative newcomer to Linux hence the trouble. I have a dual boot system with XandrOS / Windows XP running. For some reason, my winlogon.exe file is corrupt and so cannot boot to Windows. I have a backup of the file in the relevant directory, but since I have no write permissions to the Windows partition I cannot rename winlogon and replace the corrupt with the backup. Is there a fairly secure method to do so in XandrOS? I would perform a repair install of Windows, but my disc is in my laptop bag at work so i'm SOL today!

Thanks for any help!

I believe (but I've never tried it) that one of the fuse plug-ins will let you write to an NTFS partition. Look at this reference: How to achieve native NTFS write support under Linux

As of linux 2.6.15, the kernel NTFS driver is considered safe for writing. I'd suggest that over FUSE.

AFAIK, it's still limited writing though. I don't think you can create files, yet.

Written by the same team - even they recommend the user-space tools for the extra functionality.
Looks like XandrOS isn't at the later (kernel) levels anyway - who knows what ntfsprogs they ship.

If it cost you money, ask their support peole.

The kernel driver can create files and all that shizzle now

Yeah true but I've heard a lot of reports that the userspace tools are writing to disk at like 300-600KB/s. I'd rather lose some functionality and gain some speed as all the basic stuff is done. Just done use passworded directories etc.
