In my PC I have installs Windows7 and then Ubuntu as OSes. When I try to access other partitions ( E: and F: which I'm using from Winsows7 OS) it get mount without any issue and can read and modify the files. Only thing I can't do is create or rename file on that partitions.

How can I fix this issue?


The default in-kernel NTFS driver only has limited write support; you need to use an NTFS driver that supports those operations. Take a look at ntfs-3g.

  • Awesome!!! Thank you Chris. After installing ntfs-3g and remount the partition, it worked :) – Yasiru G Dec 11 '12 at 6:22
