This program allow you to easily configure all of your NTFS devices to allow write support via a friendly gui. For that use, it will configure them to use the open source ntfs-3g driver. You'll also be able to easily disable this feature.

It just so happens that this program is a newer and improved version, but very few people know about it. It's better to install the disk-manager.

Keep getting error message: "NO Authentication Program found ntfs-config need to be run as root, but I can't find a graphical authentication program. You should install gksu or kdesu. Alternatively, you can run ntfs-config from the terminal with su or sudo." Even tried editing but no luck with fstab after some bad Windows 10 Pro re installs! I'm looking to rid myself of any trace since it leaves NTDETECT and other files on other partitions!

Did not work. GUI does not open. Previously, user accounts could not access ntfs disk. Now administrator cannot cannot access ntfs disk either.

Works fine. disk-manager did not solve my problem, ntfs-config does.

In mint 12 you must typw first on terminal: sudo apt-get install hal . Without it, ntfs-config will not work. It's a dependency problem.
