I have two external usb hdds, one is FreeAgent Seagate and another one is Trancend. Each has 320 GB capacity. When I bought them, they were formated as fat32 file system. But I re-formated them ntfs so that I could copy large file like more than 4 GB.
I've been trying to mount them with read and write acees on my freebsd 8. But I got thoes ntfs usb hdds with read access only.
I have also 8 GB usb stick formated with fat32 file system. I tried to mount the 8 GB usb stick with [CMD=""]# mount -a -t msdosfs /dev/da2s1 /media/usb[/CMD]. That was successfully mounted with read and write access as normal user. So I thought that I could use my FreeAgent usb hdd with rw access if I re-formatted to fat32 file system. Then I re-formatted my FreeAgent usb hdd as fat32. And then I mounted it with [CMD=""]# mount -o large -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/FreeAgent[/CMD]. It was done very well and I can use now FreeAgent with rw access as normal user.
But the problem is that I would like to keep my another usb hdd Trancend with ntfs file system and I would like to mount it with rw access.
Pleae help me to get work with ntfs read write access as normal user.
I've already done the following steps:
- Code: Select all
# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-ntfs
# make install clean
# vim /etc/rc.conf
# vim /boot/loader.conf
# mkdir -p /media/Trancend
# chmod 777 /media/Trancend
# mount -t ntfs /dev/da0s1 /media/Trancend
it only had read access.
