Ubuntu – I Control My Hardrive

I have been suffering a problem with my NTFS partitions, I couldn’t delete the files on them to trash! After trying many different things I finally found a solution.

I install PYSDM from the Software Center and set the drives to auto-mount. Then I replaced this line in /etc/fstab

#Entry for /dev/sdb7 :
UUID=01CB886B4DC9A550                      /media/Downloads_and_Important  ntfs-3g    defaults,    0    0


#Entry for /dev/sdb7 :
UUID=01CB886B4DC9A550                      /media/Downloads_and_Important  ntfs-3g    defaults,umask=002,fmask=113,gid=100,uid=1000    0    0

This gave me, my account alex – Alex-Wendland, full control over the drives and succesfully deleted the files to trash like it should!
