Im having a problem writing to an NTFS pendrive.
I have created the NTFS pen drive in the following way:
created the label with 'o', then written the table with 'w'
I've then gone into fdisk again :
started the partition creation with 'n', and chosen 1 partition '1', then written that with 'w'
I then used mkntfs to format:
The blkid command gives me this output:
/dev/sda1: UUID="58CEA9511D6BCEFA" TYPE="ntfs"
I can mount the pendrive (as root) with:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive
and the mount command output:
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/pendrive type ntfs (rw)
I have changed the permissions on /mnt/pendrive (while mounted) to 777, owner/group=root
However, when I try to copy something to the drive I get this error:
cp: cannot create regular file `/mnt/pendrive/file.txt': Permission denied
What am I missing here?
