I have a 2nd hard drive that is used for data only, it has been formatted both in NTFS and FAT32, the system is dual booted with Windows so the Data drive is used to share data between Win and Ubuntu.
However in Ubuntu with the user account set as limited user, I cannot do anything with the files, namely create files, edit names, move them, modify etc. But I can do all that fine with the Admin account.
I've tried changing permissions, ownership, installing ntfs plugins etc. Nothing seems to work. Didn't have this problem in the old Ubuntu 10.04. I'm currently running on 12.04 LTS
