I have a big problem with my Manjaro 21.1.2 Pahvo (KDE 5.85.0 / Plasma 5.22.5)
I have 2 storage devices on my laptop:
A 256GB SSD that I installed the OS on this one
a 500GB SSD that I use for my storage and keep my files on it
My problem is that every file in the 500GB drive is always executable by default and even when I remove executable permission, it will be executable again automatically!
Take a look: https://drive.google.com/file/d/12M8UMOv_DIOwyHjns1HAUcKfYr_erYdv/view?usp=sharing
Because it is not a native Linux file system. NTFS can’t store Linux file permissions. The permissions you see are just emulated by the userland driver. There is a option that can change it at mount time. However, it will be for all files the same and it can’t be changed without remount of the filesystem. Programs like chmod , chown , … will not work. Since you need to specificity the options you need to use the mount command, or a systemd mount unit (or a fstab entry).
