Re: Cannot remove 'execute' permission from vfat & ntfs partitions
Point taken Dragan. What I want to do is remove the 'execute'
permission from all files under /mnt/winC and /mnt/winE.
Thanks for the tip Bill.
/dev/hda1 /mnt/winC vfat uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=007,fmask=117 0 0
... allows owner and group to navigate, create & delete directories;
and read & write, but not execute files ~ which is exactly what I want.
However, dmask & fmask do not appear to be options for ntfs. I have
/dev/hda6 /mnt/winE ntfs uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=227,fmask=337 0 0
... which I hoped would allow owner and group to navigate directories
and read, but not write or execute files. This strangely results in the
permissions for winE being 414.
Have I missed something or is it not possible to achieve this for ntfs.
