Dec 2008 “Present”:
Its more than two weeks, for having nothing much to do in office. Enough with two weeks of chatting on internal chat client, stumbling upon the Internet, going through a few interesting blogs (though I like it when company still pays me for doing these activities).

I don’t know what made me check out Ankush’s blog one more time, but again my “Time-pass” instincts overtook me and I  read his blog post-to-post, to finally stumble upon (I use these words a lot these days) this post.

Ankush, I would like to add backstage fun to this cool expedition of three super genius minds.

So ladies and gentlemen (may be “ladies and gentlemen” don’t read my blog), here I am telling you all behind-the-scene stories about our “Not-so-famous” Pachmarhi trip.

Changing Permissions of NTFS Partitons from “Read Only” to “Read & Write” in Linux November 15, 2007

Posted by Abhishek Thakur in Linux, Technical.

Most of Linux users, having a dual boot operating system, face a problem of not able to write to NTFS partitions created by Windows operating system… the reason being NTFS partitions have “read only ” permissions.

A simple solution to this problem is a system tool – NTFS Configuration Tool .

Install and use NTFS Configuration Tool in linux

( I’ll be using the example of Ubuntu 7.04 “Fiesty Fawn”, the one I am using nowadays …)

  • Click on Applications/Add-remove.
  • Type NTFS in the search box and select all available applications in show box.
  • You will find NTFS Configuration Tool, select it to install and click apply.
  • After the utility is installed click on Applications/System Tools/NTFS Configuration Tool.
  • Check the required boxes and click ok.

Now your NTFS partitions have “read and write” permissions.
