for those who are desperate of mounting their ntfs drives read and write , and dual booting aside win 10 , Read this : I know that this may sound simple and weired , but I installed elemntary OS as a second os beside win 10 , and I tried to mount ntfs multiple drives ,I followed these steps :
- I mounted them manually one by one each startup , I found it too boring for me to do every time , and they also were read only .
- I came up with the idea to edit
/etc/fstabby getting UUID through
blkidcommand and adding drives one by one to this file and adding mounting points , with adding
rwin the options , it didn't work.
- I switched to windows 10 , turned off quick startup ,unchecked drive caching in device manager, and pressed shift while shutting down to shutdown windows completely and prevent hibernation , rebooted to eOS , IT DIDN'T WORK EITHER .
- I tried
chmod, changing mount points ,
fstaboptions and vice versa , none of this worked for me .
- The solution was to install ntfs-3g using
sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g,and It even worked for me using only defaults in options , I didn't write rw , I used a random mount point , I even didn't change drive type from ntfs to ntfs-3g , and drives are mounted each startup automatically with read and write permissions .
I just want to leave an extra solution ,you can talk to me for further investigation if want , this is my first time to submit a contribution in a stack exchange community so I'm sorry for this mess, Thanks .
