Enable writing to a ntfs disk

Hi everyone, check out my screenshot. I can not delete or write to an ntfs disk. How do I fix this? I’d like to write on disk. And how do I mount the disk automatically when I start?

Is ntfs-3g installed? I thought it was part of the default install.

read-write ntfs - Arch Wiki

Yes, ntfs-3g is installed. I was able to access the files by entering root mode.

In order to mount the disks/partitions at boot, you’ll have to edit the /etc/fstab file.

There are some examples in the link I posted earlier.

I don’t know if there is a utility in the repos that will give you a nice gui to edit the fstab with the permissions you want. If you’ve never done it manually, it’s a bit tricky and you can mess up your system.

Hi @Beagle, we are here to help you man anytime but when the questions you ask are easily solved by using Google or the Arch Wiki it gets a little frustrating.

As I said we will always help you but we’d like to see you trying to help yourself first. :slight_smile: This helps with your general knowledge of Arch and ArchLabs.

Again, emphasis on, we will always help you if you run in to trouble.

Moving, yet again, to Basic Help.
