A question about accessing ntfs partitions as user
Sorry to ask a question Im sure will be considered simple by most. My problem is I cant access my ntfs storage partitions as user in slackware 13. Ive tried many things Ive found doing searches with no luck. When I attempt to access the drive I get the message "could not enter folder DATA". Here is a copy of my fstab.
Thank you both for your answering posts. But root already has read/write access to the disk and I dont need that for a user only read only. So what would I add to simply give users ro access? Im really sorry as this is certainly one of my weakest areas of knowledge.
Also no joy with ntfs-3g edits. With that added to fstab I no longer get the "cant access folder DATA" error but it appears to open but shows partition empty. Im looking forward to getting this done so Ill know how to handle an issue like this in the future. And I agree cwwilson I love slackware myself for the same reason. I just dont usually get so stumped by something that seems should be simple.
