comment Having trouble with Samba and NTFS on a CentOS server
The drive is getting on in years, and in further observation, it actually drops out of /dev when it encounters problems, fixed only by restarting the drive. Seems pretty sure that the enclosure is not long for the world.

comment Having trouble with Samba and NTFS on a CentOS server
So it turns out that my problems are not rooted in NTFS, but rather in having the drive mounted externally. Inevitably it times out and corrupts the mount point. I tested NTFS with another internal partition formatted to NTFS, and it works beautifully. My colleague does not want to gut his drive, however, so gimped it shall stay. Thanks for your answer!

I'll give ntfsmount a try- I had been using vanilla mount. Hopefully this works, though!
