I have a 1TB HDD (
/dev/sda1, mount point
/run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF) that I'm trying to mount as read-write, but I can only get it to mount as read-only.
$ uname -a Linux <hostname> 4.10.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Mar 27 08:28:22 CEST 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ lsblk -f NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT sda └─sda1 ntfs 4733A97E4133EADF /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF sdb ├─sdb1 swap d9cea12d-5273-49ef-8950-3cd662fe63c7 [SWAP] └─sdb2 ext4 e09a8578-53e9-4c26-9a97-a47b6350a1ab / ...
What I've tried
- Adding a fstab entry to automount the drive on boot:
$ cat /etc/fstab # # /etc/fstab: static file system information # # <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # /dev/sdb2 UUID=e09a8578-53e9-4c26-9a97-a47b6350a1ab / ext4 rw,relatime,data=ordered 0 1 # /dev/sdb1 UUID=d9cea12d-5273-49ef-8950-3cd662fe63c7 none swap defaults 0 0 # /dev/sda1 UUID=4733A97E4133EADF /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF ntfs defaults,users,user 0 0
I've tried with
defaults,users,user. Rebooted after each change, but the drive is still mounted as read-only:
$ ls -l /run/media/<name> ... dr-x------ 1 root root 4096 Mar 28 17:35 4733A97E4133EADF ...
- Manually remounting:
$ sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF mount: cannot remount /dev/sda1 read-write, is write-protected $ sudo umount /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF $ sudo mount -o rw /dev/sda1 /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF
At this point, the command just hanged for a few minutes, so I terminated it.
$ sudo umount /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF $ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /run/media/<name>/4733A97E4133EADF
As of yet, I have not been able to write to the drive at all (from this system, at least), even as root.
chmod have no effect because the filesystem is read-only.
What must I do to (auto)mount this drive as read-write, with normal (non-root) user access?
Have tried solutions from the following:
