NTFS - 2.2-0914 still read only?

Unread post by amarryat » Tue Sep 01, 2009 6:53 pm

From what I have read, if I attach an NTFS drive (via USB) to my DS108J with the beta firmware, I should be able to WRITE to it now as well as read. However I am still unable to write. I would like to use the internal backup with this, but it fails as it cannot write to my NTFS drive. This is a WDC 1TB Green drive in a Rosewill case, and it works fine as EXT3 and FAT32. Is there something else I need to do to get this to work?

Edit - in the privileges setup, there is no "write" selection for this NTFS drive as there was when EXT3 was used.
