Mount NTFS drive in ubuntu with all permissions

(0 comments)

My Ubuntu ext4 partition was running low in memory. so I removed all virtualenvs created on it and planned to move them to NTFS partition.

But got:

Operation not permitted


So spent couple hours on search engines. and got solution. here are steps I followed.

  • Run
          sudo blkid
          Get UUID of ntfs drive that you want to mount.
          I got P4546B26846P2BTD

  •  Edit /etc/fstab  with your favourite editor. 
         sudo vim /etc/fstab
         Append this line at end of file and save it :
         UUID=P4546B26846P2BTD /media/windows ntfs-3g auto,users,exec,permissions 0 0

  •  Reboot.

Hope I have saved some minutes of yours.
