I am new to Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu 18.10.

I have 6 NTFS partitions And I want to get all access to those drives. I cannot paste, create or delete anything from those drives. Is it possible? If it is possible, how?

My fstab description is

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sdb6 during installation
UUID=dc354829-f570-432c-8dbc-b5f64d498e1d /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /home was on /dev/sdb7 during installation
UUID=aee32533-8486-402b-9e64-7970f429e12d /home           ext4    defaults        0       2
# swap was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
UUID=fd8aab6e-8423-421e-a33b-590b15938c06 none            swap    sw              0       0

and blkid is:

  • If the NTFS partitions are in a 'hibernated' state, they are opened in read only state for safety purposes (windows 10 fast boot is really a hibernate, with an unsafe/unclosed file system allowing faster-booting as it restores the fs cache from a saved area not the file system itself). I would add entries in your /etc/fstab for your file-systems, but also check they are 'clean' & 'complete' (ie. all data is written to them & not part in a quick-boot cache outside of file-system) – guiverc Feb 3 at 12:00
  • pls add entries in fstab for me. It will be a great help for me. – Salim Feb 3 at 12:09

NTFS has been something a lot of people have had issues with, and as such there are a lot of questions already about this topic.

This is a permission issue, where your user do not have permission to write to these partitions/drives.

Please have a look at these:

  • Thanks man. I appretiate it. Those question link helped me solve the problem. :) – Salim Feb 4 at 9:56
