Reading NTFS drives in SuSe 10.1


Hi, I don't know what happened but one minute I could read the WinXP partition and then the next minute it's giving me an "Access denied" error.

Please help

Is this an internal or external drive? What is the entry for it in /etc/fstab if the former.

Reading NTFS drives in SuSe 10.1

It's an internal drive seen as hda1. Why? because I just split my one drive into two partitions. One for WinXp (Argggh) and the other for Linux

mount -t ntfs -o defaults,ro,umask=222 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

should allow you to read it for now

tou fix fstab permanently

add
,umask=222 0 0
to the end of the nTFS entry

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs user,nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 0

SuSE's YaST2 has a partitioner program which you can use also to create a mount point and add an fstab entry.
