can not mount ntfs partition(SOLVED)

Running latest waldorf.  I have my large HD also partitioned with NTFS as "backup" on /sda3/.

when I open thunar I see the backup and when I click, asks for authentication required. 

How can I open this partition?,   can I set it up so I don't need permission on every boot?


thanks,

gychang

Add that partition to /etc/fstab so that it mounts on startup.

You might give disk-manager a try (for mounting and managing NTFS partitions) if you want.

Also taking a look at the Debian Wiki page for NTFS could not harm when you want to use fstab for automount on boot.

Best regards.

If you always want it available, add an entry to /etc/fstab for it (mounting using the UUID)

Re: can not mount ntfs partition(SOLVED)

^ +1 Hinto ... I mean about the UUID, /dev/sdax will still work anyway, but UUID has become the "newer" method. I should update that babble how to. Just been lazy about it. Below is my ntfs fstab entry for automounting a window$ share.

# My new ntfs share or whatever you want to put
UUID=19C472883FB2CD3E /media/Windows ntfs-3g quiet,defaults,umask=000,r 00

Like Hinto says above, UUID is a more correct way to go about mounting partitions in fstab, I believe that too. To get the UUID's of all your partitions just open a terminal and type "sudo blkid" without the quotes o course. Alright then ... End babble and Vll! folks. wink

Re: can not mount ntfs partition(SOLVED)

^ necessity is the mother of invention.  I mount an ntfs usb drive with special permissions, (like read/write for the group) using UUID.  That way it will mount with those permissions for that drive, and not all drives that I plug in.
