    Error mounting NTFS partition

    I can't mount my partition which is /dev/sda5/ when I try to access my partition it says
    Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
    mount: only root can mount /dev/sda5 on /media/data
    . Here's the output of the fstab:

    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.#
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
