Accessing NTFS from Linux in write mode

As I said in my previous post, I switched to NTFS partition on my external USB driver, since I can now access NTFS partitions also in write mode thanks to NTFS-3G:

The cool thing is that I didn't have to modify any configuration file, thanks to ntfs-config,, a very cool GUI application that does all the job and changes your fstab file.

Try it, really cool! :-)

If you're paranoid like me ;-) you might enjoy sharing an encrypted ntfs partition betweeen the two OSes. You can do that using Truecrypt (, I've tried with Win XP and Ubuntu.

I had heard about truecrypt but never tried it yet... I'll do that soon!
