Knoppix 6: Mount NTFS drive as writable #

  1. If you've already clicked on the NTFS device icon within PCMan File Manager, right click the icon again and select "Unmount File System" (since Knoppix mounts the drive as read-only from the GUI).
  2. Launch Terminal Emulator and run fdisk to identify the NTFS partition:
    $ sudo fdisk -l
  3. Mount the device (/dev/sda1 in this example) as writable:
    $ sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
  4. When finished, be sure to unmount:
    $ sudo umount /mnt/sda1
