I have to hard drives, one IDE and one SATA. The IDE drive is divided in two patitions: System (NTFS, /dev/sda1) and PROFILE (FAT32, /dev/sda5). The SATA drive is divided in another two partitions: Media (NTFS, /dev/sdb1) and Work (NTFS, /dev/sdb5).
Following this guide, I was able to r/w my NTFS partitions, but the problem is that I have to mount them every time I boot in Ubuntu.
So, I searched a bit, and found some information about /etc/fstab. I copied the contents of fstab and added a few lines to automount my other two NTFS drives (Wubi installed Ubuntu in "Work" (/dev/sda5), for some weird reason) and my FAT32 drive.
This is how the new file looked like:
I saved the new file in /media/Work/fstabNew and copied it to /etc/fstab using sudo -s.Code:# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config -- # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/loop7 / ext3 defaults 0 1 /dev/loop6 /home ext3 defaults 0 2 /dev/loop5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/loop4 /media/extra auto defaults 0 0 /dev/sdb5 /media/Work ntfs umask=222,utf8 0 0 ##Added content starts here /dev/sdb1 /media/Media ntfs auto defaults 0 0 /dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs auto defaults 0 0 /dev/sda5 /media/PROFILE vfat auto defaults 0 0
When I restarted and booted into Ubuntu, the three new partitions were NOT mounted and I could not even see them in Computer.
The point is that maybe I didn't modify my fstab file correctly. Mind to help?
And yes, I made sure that /etc/fstab was changed.
