Mount NTFS partition at startup

In this post we will learn how to mount NTFS partition at startup in a very simple way.

You can use the following command to retrieve a list of your partitions and their UUID.

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid

Pick the one you want to automatically mount and open the file /etc/fstab by using

sudo nano /etc/fstab

Add a new row like:

UUID=XXXXXXXXXXX  /hd_mount_point       ntfs-3g defaults        0       0

where XXXXXXXXXXX is your partition UUID and /hd_mount_point is a folder on your disk you will use to access that partition.

Simply reboot and you are done!
