I use ubuntu 18.04.4.LTS and I have a second hard disk. This disk is a NTFS partition. I can't write on this disk (only reading works). I don't have the permission. There is no dual boot on my computer. I just replace windows 10 by ubuntu.

Here is my /etc/fstab

#Entry for /dev/sdb1 : 
UUID=D4D0FC4ED0FC3876   /media/mickael/D4D0FC4ED0FC3876 ntfs-3g defaults,nodev,nosuid,locale=fr_FR.UTF-8    0   0

I have ntfs-3g. I try ntfs-config but this one doesn't work. Do you know how to enable the writing on this disk?

Here is the return of the command mount | grep sdb : /dev/sdb1 on /media/mickael/D4D0FC4ED0FC3876 type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096) – Mick 1 hour ago

I use this command sudo mount -o remount,rw /partition/identifier /mount/point

Do you know how to keep this configuration after a reboot?

Thanks

  • Have you looked in the logs to see if there is a reason? If you type mount to list mounts, or mount |grep sdb (restrict to sdb only) is it mounted RW? If not I'd check logs, or umount it, re-mount via terminal to view the messages on screen (faster than checking logs which GUI operations require). It could be the file system is damaged & needs fsck (file system check) and the RO mounting is to prevent further damage. Is it RO or RW? – guiverc Mar 26 at 22:42
  • Look at the logs: sudo journalctl -b 0 /dev/sdb. Read the man mount, and the man pages shown by dpkg -L ntfs-3g | grep man. – waltinator Mar 26 at 23:38
