Mount NTFS Partition Or Drive At Startup With User As Owner In Ubuntu & Linux
Posted by Weston Ganger
I had a shared NTFS drive that I wanted auto-mounted at system startup for easy access through my user account. Heres how to set this up:
# Make sure ntfs-3g package is installed sudo apt-get install -y ntfs-3g # Open /etc/fstab as root # Add the following line, Assuming your partition is 'sda3' and the desired mount folder is 'my_ntfs_partition' /dev/sda3 /media/my_ntfs_partition ntfs-3g exec,permissions,auto 0 0 # Mount the partition sudo mount /media/my_ntfs_partition # Change the mount points owner to your user sudo chown myuser:myuser /media/my_ntfs_partition
Now it will be auto-mounted on startup, ready to be accessed.
