10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: bsarfatty on Oct 30, '10 03:36:51PM

WARNING: DO NOT ACTIVATE THIS!!!

It is not stable. I used this to just connect up my old PC's hard drive to access the files. It worked for about two days, where I could read and write. Then suddenly, the partition I enabled r/w through the fstab mod appeared empty. The partitiion I had not enabled r/w on still worked. I read elsewhere to run CHDISK, so I re-installed the drive on a PC and it found lots of errors on the partition I used r/w on. Still calculating data loss. The partition I did not modify, again is fine. So it's not a disk issue, it's a problem using this mod.

DON'T DO IT!

Has anyone had luck, problems using NTFS 3-G?
