NTFS as data partition

Hello guys,

I have Zorin OS on my SSD drive and other data on my HDD that is NTFS format, my problem is when I mounted partition on startup, the Move to Trash feature is disabled, and My HDD is about 9Tb I can't format it in EXT4, what do yo suggest to have this feature beside the mounting drive on startup.

Thanks for your attention. I’m looking forward to your reply.

Gday @Abdulhalim ,

Have you checked "Permissions" for the HDD?

This is the same drive in "Disks".

Before mounting, my account has the permissions but after mounting the disks at the startup, all permissions is for roots.

Sorry i read it as , you couldn't delete files.

Ok, Open "disks" select your drive you wish to mount on startup. Highlight the NTFS section, then click the Gear :gear: , select "Edit mount option"
Turn On, "User session Defaults"

Hope this helps.


Thank you for your reply, I am transferring my files, I would like to format drives as EXT4 , I guess it's the better option.
