Mounting NTFS Drive ( Read, Write ) to all users.

[ This Blog Was Moved To : http://www.diknows.com ]


Recently, I had the issue that my external HDD can’t be mounted as ( Read , Write ). It was getting mounted as read only for root user only. I needed to mount it as Read Write for all users.

The issue :
The HDD was not mounted properly , so that it needs to be fixed.

The solution:
connect the HDD ..
execute : dmesg

to know the HDD Block  ( e.g. /dev/sdb )
then execute the mount comand like this

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/mybook/ -o rw,force

then unmount the device

umount /dev/sdb1

then mount again.

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/mybook/ -o rw,force

Don’t forget to unmount the HDD after doing stuff with it.

and this is it …
