I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following.
As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows.
Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab
/dev/sda3 /windows ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,umask=000 1 0
Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root.
The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root.
How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.
Thanks a lot,
