I would also caution against trying to delete and or write to this drive it could very well prove to be a major issue.

Hi, I have an external harddrive that is NTFS partitioned. When I connect it to my laptop (running Linux 8.2) the drive mounts and I can access the files only if I'm logged in as root. Also once I've connected I can only read files on the drive. I can't copy or delete. Could anyone offer some advice on what the cause might be and how I can fis the problem? I'd really like to be able to access the drive with my normal login also.
Try mounting with -o umask=0000 You can add the option in your fstab as /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat defaults,user,umask=000 Ángel.
