Ntfs


Hey, I have ntfs installed on linux from this site, linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net
And it works perfect, But this driver is read only, I edited the fstab so its read/write but the driver still wont write, so i there anyway of writing to an ntfs drive from linux? Or is it just not possible?

Thanks
-Mark

while it is *technically* possible, it is a VERY dangerous thing to do and you WILL lose data sooner or later. seriously, just don't.

I'll take your advise! Because its not my XP drive, its just a secondary HDD that i use for storage, but i have about 40GB of important stuff on it, so i dont want to chance it!

Thanks for the advice!
