After a nasty episode (my second, you'd think I'd learn) caused by unsupervised automated podcast downloads filling my entire partition, I've finally moved just
~/Music to its own partition. The partition I'm using was already formatted NTFS (this is the genius part: when I got this computer three years ago, I actually set it up with a 20G music partition precisely because I'd had this problem before, but I never actually organized myself to store music on it. So that's my backstory. Here's what I need now:
I have two partitions that I want to start mounting on startup:
/dev/sda3 /mnt/devel ext4 defaults 0 2 /dev/sda2 /mnt/excess ntfs defaults 0 2
The ext4 partion mounts fine (owned by me, writeable only by me), but the ntfs mounts owned by root with read and write permission for all. I'm not sure how to fix this. Is there something quirky about ntfs or did I do something elsewhere that's causing this problem?
