Full Version: Permissions On Fat Partitions
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hi, just wondering if anyone knows a way to get full permissions on my two windows fat32 partitions?
I have got them permanently mounted ok... but can't write to them, even as root
to change permissions on files and directories, type the following:

chmod 777 directory_name

this changes the permission for the directory or file to full, which means that anybody can read, write and modify anything that's in that directory.
First with the FAT32 partition unmounted change the permissions like the above post.

Then add umask=000 to your /etc/fstab entry.
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat noauto,user,exec,rw,nosuid,umask=000 0 0

will do just fine.
