Auto Mount NTFS Partition/Drives on boot up.

Greeting Bob,

first we do not know which NTFS driver you have used?

Anyhow, add your mount command for the ntfs partition in /etc/rc.local


Update fstab base on this syntax:

*<your partition> /media/<mount point> ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0*

I advice you to follow up the wiki:

Be aware when you change any thing in the fstab, before you change any thing

Best Regards,
Waleed Harbi
Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
