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.

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)

^ 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.
