Unable to view Windows partition


According to 4mlinux FAQ:

All partitions are mounted automatically.

But all I see is the liveUSB that 4mlinux is installed on.
i.e. sd1

Tried in 2 different machines with same results.

The Windows partition is undoubtedly NTFS. Do you have NTFS-3G installed? Some distros include it by default; many do not, because NTFS is non-free.

And welcome to LQ.

Thanks for the suggestion but unable to check at my current environment.

Have you tried 4mlinux?

Did you have a different exp.?

Hi.

Many times sudo or su will work, then (maybe:)
Code:
chown yourUserName
but as always after backups of your wanted data\OSs.

Have fun!

To tell the truth, I've never before heard of it.

A web search tells me that it's a distro that strives to be small and versatile and is designed with data recovery in mind. In the past, I've usually turned to Knoppix when I needed to do data recovery, but, praise Bob, I've not faced that problem in some time. Knoppix was, in fact, the first distro I tried (not the first I installed--I booted the Live CD and said, "I want more of this"; that was eleven years ago when Knoppix booted into a KDE interface).

The first one I installed was Slackware; thought I've wandered about, I have always come back to Slackware.

I'm intrigued. I might give it a spin later next week.

Code:
sudo thunar
or another file manager may do, if your new? Then if it shows just right click for permissions.

Let me rephrase my thread.

It's not a question on how to mount a partition.

I'm merely asking whether 4mlinux is indeed currently unable to view the windows partition despite what its FAQ states. That is all.

With all due respect kindly refrain from posting if you have not played with the said distro.

Hi,

Which version of 4MLinux are you running? Is that 4MLinux Core?

It is an ISO downloaded from 4mlinux.com

Not sure what you mean by full or core.

4MLinux-18.0.iso

Is your 4MLinux installed to a hard disk drive?
Please post the contents of your /etc/fstab file.

Just open it with a text editor by double clicking on this file.
