How to access NTFS partison in Linux

You need to use the mount command.

To get the full info on it, type "man mount" at the shell.

Here's the skinny:

You need to do this as root.

create a directory to act as the mount point for the NTFS volume. Say you call it /ntdriveTo mount the ntfs volume to your mount point:

mount /dev/hdxy -t ntfs /ntdrive

Replace the 'x' in 'hdxy' with the drive and the 'y' with the partition number of the NTFS volume.

So, if your NTFS volume is the first partition on your first hard drive, you would enter:

mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs /ntdrive

Hope this helps.

Hi - First post will get you going. You will have to do that each time you boot. You can add the lines to ??? (don't know where) so that it gets executed each time you boot.

When I was starting with Linux I did same/similar. There should be a question about other OS partitions you want to be able to access from Linux. If you answer No to that, you have to manually mount any other partitions.

I think you can do a re-install and modify the answer to get other partitions but not sure about that (been a while since I did Linux installs and never that good with it to begin with). Once you know the mount file to change it isn't too hard to get as part of boot. Maybe someone with more knowledge than I will point you at the file. Should be in an Admin Guide if you have one.
