[SOLVED] Dropbox not syncing with NTFS

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Well I gave NTFS another try today and it worked...I then realized that after gparted finished its formatting, it mounted the partition by itself and did not read from fstab entry about permissions and such. I looked to see what's changed and voila...gparted mounted the partition with additional mount option 'default_permissions'.It seems that by default (even when passing defaults as a mount option) ntfs-3g does not include default permissions and it causes at least one application to have issues (dropbox) and mounting the partition with that mount option fixes the problem. Now (HowTos)
