    Hello again :)

    While I am aware that Linux (most distros) do not fully support NTFS. And most will only allow mounting an NTFS drive as read only. I myself prefer NTFS over Fat32 and would love too see a tutorial on how to get NTFS enabled for wrting as well as reading.

    I have seen programs such as Captive, but for a newbie standpoint their help ect.. is a bit vague.

    Along with that, possibly some newer maintained applications to allow mounting NTFS in Linux for Read/Write that are possibly Free like Captive? I saw Paragon ect.. but its payware and the trial only allows Read Only mode, where as I refuse to pay for something I am unable to at least get to test its features before buying. Cannot test writing so no way im buying.

    Anyways, thanks for the read.
