I tried to save files to a NTFS partition.
I get the message that file could not be saved.

I have aptosid - keres 64-bit, ntfs-3g is there by default, and I have edited the fstab to write to some NTFS partitions.
Changing ro option to rw worked everytime earlier.

What is missing?

Thanks

ntfs != ntfs-3g

So what you have changed in your fstab? It should looks like:
      Code:

/dev/disk/bu-uuid/foo   /media/foo  ntfs-3g  defaults   0  0

Then it would work!

Does not work. I will reboot. I have saved the file and done a 'mount -a' too.

Editing fstab and changing ro to rw used to work, I had not done anything else
till date.

Thanks.

Alot of my workmates swear by ntfs-config

      Code:
apt-get install ntfs-config


Today I installed this on 2 boxes (32 bit) to test, works great here, your mileage my vary

*This is not supported nor recommended by aptosid*

I have the same issue.
The only way to write is to mount using:
      Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /media/windows -t ntfs-3g -o force

If you need force, then the partition was not cleanly removed under win!

Probably... Never you can be sure what's going on there Smile
But I don't think this is the problem.
Any way this is not problem for me since I go in windows once per year.

@towo

Working after reboot. You said it will work, and it works.

Thanks.
