So guys I'm left in dark, alone. Won't anybody help me? :'(

1 Change your mount options
2 Change your permissions

That's not it.

To what would you change it? And how? Chmod does not work on a windows
ntfs-3g mount. Try yourself.

I have (11.3) mount options

What exactly would you change?

Any one or more of a number of things.
Mostly I don't have all drives and partitions mount as root at boot, I
have ",user," or ",users," in there and mount them as "me" when I need
them. Which, with windows isn't often. Which is why I don't mount that
partition as a matter of course -that's ",noauto,".

I can also set the ownership at mount time with ",uid=anton," and
",gid=users," then set the file and directory masks to allow user and
group read and write. In this case I don't need the explicit

As a matter of course I can also have my mount points access set so that
non-root users can get in and edit.

Yes, chmod doens't work on a ntfs mounted fs. That's why I would do all
this BEFORE the mount.
