Why is linux such a bitch when it comes to mounting ntfs partitions >_> Every time I tried it it either had the wrong permissions or it failed. In the end I simply decided to format it as ext4, luckily there was nothing on it yet.

    Why would you expect Linux to support closed source NTFS ? Try exFAT instead

    @GaryCarneiro Didn't realise it was closed source. It does however support it up to a point, but something else like exfat or ext4 is indeed a better choice.

    Linux supports reading NTFS partitions. Write support needs some additional kernel modules.

    @GaryCarneiro for me I could write to it, but only as root. Annoying part is that chown and chmod didn't change it.
