Question USB hard disk drive, using NTFS


I am running Red Hat Linux 8.0 (Psyche) and Kernel 2.4.18-14,
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if i can mount a removeable USB hard disk drive that is using NTFS. I can not put fat32 back on it becuase i am using NTFS comperssion. If I put reverted back to fat32 there would not be enough room to copy evertyhing back on.

Thanks for you help, I realise that there may be not solution.

But anyway thanks for your help

Thumbs down Sorry

You should be able to read the drive but do NOT try to write to it. You may have to mount the drive to access it. I don't know the command though.
You should have some kind of hardware detection tool that will see it and let you mount it.

Sorry not much more help.
