Hello,

Can you please clarify what data you want moved to what hard drive? This post, when read over a few times, makes no sense whatsoever.

Cheers,

Josh

If you have your drive NTFS partition formatted then your Linux will not know how to use it.
you will have to mount the drive in linux with support for NTFS
then you will be able to maybe even write to that mounted drive.

FAT32 is easier but it requires to modify the partitions on the drive.
