[QUOTE=okos;4522643]Try this first to see if ntfs-3g and fuse work:
sudo mkdir /mnt/windows
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda6 /mnt/windows
Do you see the windows files?
Next try this:
Type the following and print the results:
I typed that and got this.....
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/windows
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/windows': File exists
private@private-keepOUT ~ $ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda6 /mnt/windows
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.
The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which
could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.
private@private-keepOUT ~ $ ls /mnt/windows
Do you now see the windows files?
Look for the mount point for ntfs-3g in your fstab file.
Go to the mount point directory and list the contents.
cd <path of mount point>
Tried that and got this....
cd <path of mount point>
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

If the above two options do not show the windows files, chances are you need to reinstall ntfs-3g.
I went to synaptic...
typed ntfs-3g and see it installed.
I go to RUN Application...
Could not open location 'file:///home/private/NTFS-3G
Error stating file '/home/private/NTFS-3G': No such file or directory
Compile and install ntfs-3g. Next try the usage instructions.
I really am lost at "Compile" even tho I read the "How Tos" on compiling more than a few times, but it went right over my head..
So I did all that I know to do, is synaptic > type ntfs-3g in search again > reinstalled
RUN Applications....ntfs-3g it disappears this time without a error message...
Go to computer > 63GB and see Nothing
Go to computer > Mint media/ Mint ..... see Nothing
Go to 21GB E200091C80091A457 [whatever that number is or where it came form.] It is my XP partition and see "File System" files..
So I believe that SOMEHOW..... some of my files got shifted around when I updated Grub2 and had Grub2 take over booting.
Or more than likly not....
But whatever... thanks for the try.... I can't access some of my file IN Mint.... that I used to access because of the .... to many ... file:///home/private ERRORS and no look at D: Data partition.
Thank you for putting up with this old n@@b for as long as you did! REALLY!
