NTFS access
abouzar 23 Jan
Hi to all Linux community specially gamers.
Till yesterday I used dual boot windows 10 and nobara.
Ditched windows and fully migrated to linux. heres the problem now I can't access full control on my NTFS partition.( Just read)
When it was dual I knew had to shutdown windows properly.but don't know what should I do now.

Edited fstab file but no success.
Any help?

Take a look at ntfs-3g. That's the best NTFS implementation for Linux that I am aware of.

In the long run though, if you are no longer using Windows, you may want to copy your data to another disk somewhere, and format your NTFS partition to something more Linux-friendly, like ext4.

The last time you used Windows you didn't shut it down properly and it became like this. There is a Terminal software called ntfsfix.
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY

Of course you should use the proper partition label.
You could try turning off hibernation and fast boot in Windows. Those 2 features caused me many headaches with the read only problem.
