View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mounting SFS FS

I have a SATA drive that I want to mount on my new Ubuntu system.
With fdisk, it identifies the drive as having a SFS file system. After tinkering with directions given here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive, and reading other forums, I was able to manually mount it by using this command:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/Storage -o force

Not sure that that -o force command does, but it seems to have done the trick, and now my drive is mounted.

Now, I want the drive to mount automatically at boot. The typical
/dev/sda1 /media/Storage ntfs-3g defaults 0 2
doesn't seem to work. Can you help?

Thanks in advance.

Can't you just put "mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/Storage -o force" in the Sessions startup list? That should work I think.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'd rather not try unless it's a sure fix.
Eg. the other line in fstab doesnt have the command "mount" in the line.
