Ubuntu: Mount NTFS Partitions at Boot

📅 2010-Apr-01 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ ntfs, ubuntu ⬩ 📚 Archive


Since I am dual-booting the laptop between Windows XP and Ubuntu, I would like to access my NTFS partitions in Ubuntu for both read and write. To tell Ubuntu to mount them everytime at boot:

$ sudo ntfs-config

In the ntfs-config dialog, choose the NTFS partitions you want mounted at boot and choose Write capability for internal drives. ntfs-config mounts the partitions immediately and also adds the relevant mount entries to /etc/fstab so they are also mounted at boot everytime.
