• Mount NTFS drive automatically with user rw permissions


    So I used to have my drives automatically mounted with user permissions. Since a couple of weeks, I’m no longer able to write to these drives and I can’t fix it.

    Here’s what my fstab file looks like:

    /dev/disk/by-uuid/3E185D32185CEA83      /home/fnc/data1        auto    nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0       0
    /dev/disk/by-uuid/98D2E85DD2E840DC      /home/fnc/data2        auto    nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0       0

    I’ve tried changing auto to ntfs-3g and adding uid=1000,gid=100,dmask=027,fmask=137 flags. Also, I’ve tried users flag but nothing changes.

    Am I missing something?

    Would you show the output of commands

    ls -ld /home/fnc/data1 /home/fnc/data2
    sudo blkid

    In /etc/fstab I’m using ntfs instead of auto or ntfs-3g and it works for me. Maybe you could try to modify your /etc/fstab to

    /dev/disk/by-uuid/3E185D32185CEA83 /home/fnc/data1 ntfs defaults

    and similar with data2.

    This /dev/disk/by-uuid/3E185D32185CEA83 /home/fnc/data1 ntfs defaults fixed the problem, but I don’t know why it stopped working as it was before.

    Great to hear the problem is solved! :)
    Maybe the old setting in /etc/fstab was a workaround for older ntfs-3g version or kernel version, difficult to tell.
    I’ve used only ntfs and defaults on such cases always when no extra settings were needed, and it has always worked for me.
