Thank you bald brick. That helps me understand where I went wrong and I do want to know how to add these type of things manually. thank you to all. I will be adding resolved to the subject line shortly I am just still hoping someone can help me with the whole moving my default folders to this partition. (See last reply I posted)
Hi, this is much more simple than you can figure out. Once mounted to /media/windows for example, you will go into the main directories and open a console, type "mc" and there you will have a text mode file manager where you can select all files and directories from one side panel and copy to the other side panel.
At the beginning it seams tricky, to see how to move in it, but with the tab key to change side panel, the F commands (use only the copy command, not the move command... it's safer) and the Inser or * key to select files and folders, or lists of folders, you will fast have done the whole copy, in a very safe way, and easy to follow what happens.
Later, I can provide you commands to give the right permissions to all theses files... in one command line for all the files and same for the directories.(Ntfs file systems doesn't use the same attributes as in Linux file systems).
