I have an external USB hard disk with two NTFS volumes on it. I planned on attaching it to my router so that only one volume is available, but the router automatically mounts and shares both. Is it possible with NTFS to prevent a volume from being mounted or accessed by my router (or other computers in general)?
I tried to set NTFS permissions (attached directly to my computer, Windows 7) for folders on the drive so that only
SYSTEM have access. When the drive is mounted on the router these permissions don't seem to matter and are not visible. The only visible permissions grant read-write access to generic UNIX root and users group, and everyone; these cannot be changed from my computer while attached to the router (at least not though Windows properties-security tabs). I've also toyed with getting a command prompt (e.g. SSH) on the router (Belkin N750) by putting the IP and standard ports in PuTTY, but have not even got a login. (I don't know if there is special configuration involved, or how to find the configuration if so). Any ideas where I'm going wrong with these ideas may help resolve my problem.
