NTFS Permissions.


hey, i have an ntfs mount that i wish to change permissions of individual directories.

i have mounted many ntfs volumes successfully, mounting is not the issue. the issue is that when mounting, i need to specify 'blanket' permissions, owner, group etc. i have no idea how to change permissions for individual folders.

can this even be done?


thanks.

Hi,

afaik one can change the NTFS permissions only in Windows. The problem is less that Linux could not handle the permissions, but that Linux does not know anything about the users of the Windows-installation. An operatingsystem can change permissions only for those users/groups which it knows....
You can specify the permissions for the whole NTFS-partition with the umask flag in the /etc/fstab, look at the manpages for umask and fstab. But this permissions don't make a difference for the individual folders in the NTFS-partition.

Markus

I agree. Only a guess would be some SAM database since it has to authenticate against a few things.
