Hi,

I have an NTFS partition that i want mounted automatically and in read/write, i tried many options but without success so i'm turning to you guys :)

Here is my fstab:

( /dev/sda4 is the concerned partition )

# Created by anaconda on Tue Jun 13 19:33:27 2017
#
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info
#
UUID=631253ab-cf94-493d-9a4f-606e2c29f306 / ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=5e15c6f6-4bba-4603-9ea6-7fcad1923f85 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2

What do you get ?

Try remounting manually (as root) with no option, and post the output :


umount /mnt/data
ntfs-3g /dev/sda4 /mnt/data

Make sure you've set the power button to do a full shutdown in Windows. Google will show you how. By default, when you shutdown a newer Windows system, the Windows partition is not cleanly unmounted, and linux will refuse to mount it R/W.

I had a message telling me that there were filesystem errors so it was mounted with read only permissions, I rebooted under MS Windows and scanned and shut down properly but it didn't solve the problem until I tried dd_wizard's solution.

That was the issue ! I disabled the " Turn on fast startup " option in Windows's power settings and after booting on Fedora25 the partition is properly mounted with the writing permissions.


Thanks for your help :thumb:
