Mounting Windows NTFS Partition in ...[solved]

Recommended Posts

Every time I click on the icon that shows my drive in dolphin it says a whole long sentence that I do not have enough privileges to mount the drive. I can open the drive once I run dolphin in root but that isn't a permanent solution to this problem. How can I resolve this problem? I included a screen shot for more reference to show what I am talking about.

Mandriva 2008.1 user here, so I do not have dolphin and I am just taking a guess.

 

Can you right click on the folder and go to properties and go to permissions and adjust so that you have viewing privileges?

Here is what I did:

 

1) go into the MCC --> local disks ---> manage disk partitions

 

2) be careful here, click continue and then click on your windows partition. On the right side you will see a button for a "mount point", click it and then name the mount point (like /mnt/windows). then click done.

 

3) reboot and enjoy.

 

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the wonderful solution. It fixed my problem! What did that really do? Isn't Windows already mounted to the mount point?
