Unable to write to Unassigned Devices

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to unRAID and new to the forum, I'm just beginning to explore the possibilities of unRAID and it's very exciting! However just encountering a few small bugs that I'm not sure how to get past. 


A problem I'm having is that I'm unable to write to my unassigned devices that're formatted as NTFS. They're just USB Hard Drives I wish to mount separately from my array. I'm able to read from it no problem, but writing and deleting files on the drives via network shares or Krusader proves that I lack the write permission. I tried searching and seems that there's a "ntfs-3g" driver thing? That was a really old post and config seems quite complex. 


Please let me know how I should diagnose this. Appreciate the help! unRAID OS version 6.5.3.

read/write mount failed, so it was then mounted read only:


Aug 15 16:56:46 HomeServer unassigned.devices: Mount drive command: /sbin/mount -t ntfs -o auto,async,noatime,nodiratime,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 '/dev/sde2' '/mnt/disks/Kevin'
Aug 15 16:56:46 HomeServer unassigned.devices: Mount failed with error: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Device or resource busy
Aug 15 16:56:46 HomeServer unassigned.devices: Mounting ntfs drive read only.
Aug 15 16:56:46 HomeServer unassigned.devices: Mount drive ro command: /sbin/mount -t ntfs -ro auto,async,noatime,nodiratime,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 '/dev/sde2' '/mnt/disks/Kevin'

Yes I know I should be, but I can't and that's why I'm trying to find out why. I'm unaware that there's a Unassigned Devices thread (can't find it). If there is admin please move me there.

this came up higher when trying to google the same issue. any massive thread is useless when trying to search for one answer.
