Hi Trevor

To avoid any mess up in this thread and on my old iSCSI thread, as Phil suggest, I start a new topic about my NTFS mount issue on Centos6-General Support topics:


Anyway, answering your question, - yes, but I need mount it as NTFS to be available in Centos and Windows - this is my problem...

Kind regards

You can also use the EPEL repository to install the package "ntfs-3g" on CentOS 6

[quote]$ sudo yum install ntfs-3g ntfsprogs[/quote]

[quote]NTFS-3G is a stable, open source, GPL licensed, POSIX, read/write NTFS
driver for Linux and many other operating systems. It provides safe
handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows
Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 NTFS file systems. NTFS-3G can
create, remove, rename, move files, directories, hard links, and streams;
it can read and write normal and transparently compressed files, including
streams and sparse files; it can handle special files like symbolic links,
devices, and FIFOs, ACL, extended attributes; moreover it provides full
file access right and ownership support.
