moving files between windows partitions, in knoppix


I'm new to linux, and trying to move files from one windows partition to another on a different hard drive.

I mounted the two partitions with the mount -t ntfs blah blah blah command.

Both partitions mounted correctly and are located in /mnt/win and /mnt/win2.

I'm trying to move files from win to win2, but get an operation not permitted error when trying to do so with the mv command.

I'm using knoppix, running only from the cd, if it helps.

Permision problems. right click on each drive and under properties let the "user" or your name have read and write access.

Just for simplicity's sake, i selected everything in the root folder and mnt folder, and set all permissions for everyone.

Still no luck.

The specific error im getting is "cannot create directory" operation not permited. or something close to that.

They are NTFS... Linux won't let your write to those drives directly...

Are there any ways I can write to these directories, or to another that windows can access?

I believe Knoppix comes with "Captive NTFS" in right on the menu... Never tried it myself so can't tell you how reliable it is...

Format partition where you want to write in FAT32 and try again.
