  2. When booted, you attempt to access an NTSF partition;
  3. The attempt fails with the following error:

    Read-only file system


The Linux-style bootable media cannot write a backup to an NTFS-formatted volume.


Switch to the Windows style to write to an NTFS-formatted volume.

To switch, click Tools -> Choose media style.
