I have a USB drive that I'd like automounted at startup, but somehow that doesn't seem to happen.

I have 3 NTFS formatted drives, 2 internal and one external. When I browse the mount points of the two internal drives, I see the full listing of the disks' contents. When I go to the external drive's mount point, I see nothing until I enter: "sudo mount <mount point>" at which point, everything works fine.

It used to work automatically (where the external would also be mounted at startup), but I believe it changed when one time the power cord was loose and the drive was not powered on while the system was booting.

I would like to restore the original behavior, where the drive boots mounted and I do not need to run a terminal session each time the system boots up (I can't exactly create a script because mount needs root permissions to run).
