How to mount external USB NTFS drive on Ubuntu
Posted on 2008-06-26
We have a Linux Ubuntu 7.04 machine in the office, we want to backup the data on the machine so we bought an external USB drive to do so. The USB drive is preformatted in ntfs and has 750GIg. When I connect the drive to the ubuntu machine it tells us that we cannot access the drive. How can I mount the drive so that it is accessible through Ubuntu? Is it possible to make the configuration permanent so that if we disconnect/reconnect the drive it is recognized and read/write ready automatically (so that I wouldn't have to mount the drive everytime we connect it.)? We need to have the drive portable so that we can also connect it on windows machine on demand...
