In Ubuntu 19.10, I can't unlock a password-protected KeepassXC file stored on a mounted NTFS volume, but if I copy it to an ext4 volume I can open it. I can read and write other file types to the NTFS volume (e.g., odt). The NTFS partition is mounted in fstab as ntfs auto,user,rw 0 0. What permissions/options need to be changed in order to unlock the password-protected KeepassXC file on NTFS from within Ubuntu?


To unlock a KeePassXC file stored on a mounted NTFS partition in Ubuntu:

  1. Open Ubuntu Software app and find KeePassXC
  2. Click on Permissions
  3. Toggle "Read/write files on removable storage devices" to on
