I am running a dual boot of Windows and Debian on my Laptop. I use Linux mostly but from time to time I need to access my files in my Windows partition. My Windows partition is mounted as follows at startup.
>cat /etc/fstab |grep Win7 LABEL=Windows7_OS /mnt/Win7 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
Basically every file in the Windows partition is owned by root:root and has a 777 permission. Then whenever I mv a file to my working (Linux) partition, I have a 777 file under my partition, owned by me (while cp in terminal will give a 755 file but if done via gnome will save the file with a 777 permission).
Is this the best practice to mount a partition? Or should I mount it such that instead of root, I am the owner of all files/dirs and somehow be able to set all dirs to 755 and files to 644 when the mount happens at boot? If so, how can it be done?
