ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation Linux NTFS driver for 32-bit, little-endian architectures which was implemented by the Linux-NTFS project. It provides full read-write access to NTFS, excluding access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing file ownership, access right.
Technically it's based on and a major improvement to the third generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements includes functionality, quality and performance enhancements.
The driver currently is in BETA status: before release of this software we haven't experienced any driver crashes or data loss during our heavy quality testing, however we are aware of some minor issues which will be resolved in the near future. We listed all of them in a below section.
Make sure you have the basic Linux development tools and FUSE (http://fuse.sourceforge.net) is correctly installed on your computer then type:
make install # or 'sudo make install' if you aren't root.
If there was no error during installation then you can mount NTFS volumes for read-write access (unmount them if they were already mounted by another NTFS driver.)
ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
If you want to give full access for all users, ignore permission related driver messages, and make national characters visible then use (drop or replace the below hu_HU.utf8 with the appropriate setting, and also the device and mount points, if needed).
ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -o silent,umask=0,locale=hu_HU.utf8
Please see the ntfs-3g manual page for more options and examples.
You can also make NTFS to be mounted during boot by ensuring that the FUSE kernel module is automatically loaded and by putting the below line into /etc/fstab
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g silent,umask=0,locale=hu_HU.utf8 0 0
FUSE >= 2.5.0
What's New in This Release:
fix: case-insensitive directory rename to itself may failed
fix: some regular files weren't accessible on Linux
fix: files created on Linux may became inaccessible on Windows
