Apparently the answer is here: https://superuser.com/questions/251537/mount-specific-ntfs-directory-on-linux however it is not working as expected.
I have a dual boot system with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.04 (upgraded from 12.10), and I want to access my Windows 7 personal folders for both reading and writing. I followed instructions according to the given link and my
/etc/fstab file looks like this:
/dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs ro,umask=0222,defaults 0 0 /media/windows/Users/MyUser/ /home/myuser/Windows ntfs-3g rbind,user,umask=0222,defaults 0 0 /media/windows/Users/OtherUser/ /home/otheruser/Windows ntfs-3g rbind,user,umask=0222,defaults 0 0
It almost works as expected. My Windows partition is on
/media/windows/ with read-only permissions and my Windows personal folder is in
~/Windows. However this personal folder is also read-only.
Note I'm configuring this in a multisession environment, so I need this to work for my session and for other user's sessions. I need that each user can access and be able to write and read their Windows folders from Linux.
