NTFS Viewing


I cannot view my external hdd while NOT on root. How do I change this. WHile on root, I tried to give permissions, but it said not allowed by protocol... Any ideas?

Did you add an entry in /etc/fstab for your harddrive?

If not, add this to your fstab file:
Code:
/dev/hdbX        /mnt/hd           ntfs        noauto,user,ro,umask=000 0  0
Where the b in hdb is for which disk it is, a,b,c,etc, and X is the partition number, 1,2,3,etc.

Also, if you want it to mount at boot, just delete the noauto part.

Ok I did, but still no go... The exact error is "could not enter /ntfs". It won't let me change permissions either.

EDIT..

Sorry about that. What you told me worked; I just needed to restart. Thanks for the help!

Yeah that was bad directions on my part. I should have told you to unmount it and then remount it. Sorry about that.

The umask=222 may be better than 000, because ntfs should be used read-only
(777 - 222 = 555 -> r-xr-xr-x )
