    Can't access other hard drives

    Since installing Xubuntu on a partition on my computer, I can't access the other drives. How would I be able to access them with full read/write permissions and have Xubuntu mount them automatically when I boot?

    This should help for ext3 partions, you need to add them to fstab

    NTFS partitions the easiest way is to install ntfs-config and run the tool.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config

    That first link was exactly what I needed. I just had to visit the old partition first to get the UUIDs, then switch around the details for my specific case (ie mousepad instead of gedit).
    Thanks!
