    Why is the ntfs-3g version locked in Knoppix 7.4.2?

    .
    Just curious; I don't think I have a problem, but...

    I notice what seems to be an inconsistency between Knoppix's purposefully
    locked version of ntfs-3g and the version which Knoppix's version of
    GParted assumes is more appropriate. See the attached png.

    I don't normally do much with my Win7 partition except store some isos
    downloaded by Win7 there. I do that, because that's where I have a lot
    of unused Gbs there.

    What's the story behind Klaus K locking the ntfs-3g version, anyway?

    For me within a fresh HD install of V7.4.2 the package ntfs-3g isn't locked. Perhaps it's an effect of your method not to use only a single ovelay.

    Could this have anything to do with what I observe? See KK's note at post #8:

    Thank you for your response, Werner.

    I don't think my LiveUSB is the cause of the situation shown in the png.

    Both my LiveCD & LiveUSB pass testdvd.
    The same symptoms indicated for my LiveUSB occur for my original 7.4.2 LiveCD.

    Using either the LiveUSB or the LiveCD:
    When Synaptic is first called and ntfs is searched-for, it does NOT show ntfs-3g locked.
    When Synaptic is then closed, re-called, and ntfs searched-for a second time,
    it then DOES show ntfs-3g locked.
    Either before or after calling Synaptic, GParted shows a warning triangle for the Win7 partition.

    The symptoms seem to indicate GParted and Synaptic are using different ntfs-3g versions,
    independent of my peculiar use of secondary overlays in my LiveUSBs.

    One final clue is that my Win7 has never failed me such that I have ever felt the need
    to re-install it, nor have I done anything like a filesystem check on it. It is possible
    the Win7 filesystem may have some latent errors in it that bear on these symptoms.
    I never feel comfortable tinkering with Windows, so I don't know how to proceed to
    address the possibility that the ntfs partition itself is the cause of the symptoms.

    I also have no idea whether KKs note about ntfs problems in Knoppix 7.0.5 and what he
    did to 'repair' the situation bears any relation to my symptoms in 7.4.2 or not.

    Addendum, using a different machine...

    .
    Using the same LiveUSB on a Win8 machine gives similar results, except
    on Win8, sda3 again has GParted triangular warning flag, but since not
    an ntfs partition, note is not ntfs specific.

    Synaptic registers a locked version warning on ntfs-3g on first search
    for ntfs on the Win8 machine.

    CHKDSK removes part of the cloud

    .
    Discovered bad clusters on Win7 sda3 and scheduled CHKDSK/F, after
    which GParted no longer shows warning triangle for sda3 on Win7.

    Synaptic still says ntfs-3g is locked, but that may actually be the
    case. Such is no longer seemingly hinted as a problem by GParted, anyway.
