Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Before, I could save images downloaded from the web in the Windows partition. Even I could transfer files and all that. But today, I can't do it anymore.

Some days ago, I was trying to resize Ubuntu and Windows partition. I downloaded GParted, and I tried to shrink the Windows partition, then increase the Ubuntu partition, but as I couldn't do that, I never applied the Windows' shrinking.

I mentioned this because I think it caused this problem. When I tried to transfer some file or save an image from the web as I did before, there appears a message which says the partition has no writing permission, that is read-only, or something like that.

Could someone help me? If you need more specific info, ask me please.

I already solved it. I looked up on the web, and this worked. howtoforge.com/ntfs_3g_ubuntu_feisty Unfortunatelly, I don't do it methodologically. First I went to Synaptic and searched ntfs, such as indicated in the link. But at the same time, I was uninstalling GParted. It seems GParted install others things with it, wich affects the default writing permissions on ntfs. So I dont know wot solvd the prob. After that, I tryed to "write" on the Windows partition and I get the same message. Then I reboot hoping it was all needed, and it was so. I can write on Windows partition again. –  Luis J.

It is better if you answer your own question and accept that answer. That way, it will be visible to others that the question is answered, making it more useful. –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 13 '12 at 3:25
