NTFS and permissions


Issue 1. Premissions disapear on reboot
Can this be resolved or is this a side effect of Linux cooperating with NTFS.

issue 2. Since the NTFS drive is mounted as root the permissions will default to root only and other users cannot access.
I have ran a chmod -hR to the directory to include all files and files in subdirectories but only the directories get changed the files still stay only accessible to root.

I have also added a group and configured neccessary perms and added the user to the group. g+s ect....

Just had a mental thought to mount this in the /var/ftp/pub directory to maybe this will mount it with full access everywhere.

Any thoughts please reply

thanks in advance

The NTFS file system doesn't support Linux file/directory permissions so chmod won't work for you. You should be able to have the drive mounted at boot time with everyone able to read from it with the following in your /etc/fstab file (change the device name to whatever yours is):
Code:
/dev/sdb4  /mnt/windows  ntfs  defaults,umask=0000  0  0

Yes indeed that worked thank you much, I ended up using this line.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0

I see now the umask is what I was missing..
