Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

[1] Find the correct UUID number for your windows partitions:
Code: Select all
sudo blkid -c /dev/null

[2] Create permanent mountpoints for your partitions to live in, for example:
Code: Select all
sudo mkdir /media/WinD

Code: Select all
sudo mkdir /media/WinE

[3] Edit fstab as root:
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/fstab

[4] Add the following lines to the end of fstab, examples:
Code: Select all
UUID=DA9056C19056A3B3 /media/WinD ntfs defaults,umask=000,nls=utf8,windows_names 0 0
UUID=A27826107825E3AF /media/WinE ntfs defaults,umask=000,nls=utf8,windows_names 0 0

Substitute the correct UUID numbers from step [1] and the correct mountpoints from step [2].

[5] If you have already mounted these partitions manually through computer(icon) - unmount them.

[6] Run the following command that will test for errors and if there are none mount the partitions to their new home without requiring a reboot:
Code: Select all
sudo mount -a


Note: To the purist the addition of "umask=000" is redundant and unnecessary since it's in the defaults but I like to add it explicitly so that there is no doubt.

That's fine. You have to do what you have to do.

Realistically, I expect maybe 1 in 20 people will want to use the Jedi way of editing fstab directly. That's just enough I suspect to contunue the user base that will ensure that someone will be availlable to help others out of the mess that can be made when using ntfs-config, mountmanager, PySDM, and others whose names I can't remember at the moment. :wink:
