To use NTFS partition in Linux, you'll have to create a directory to mount the partition and then mount the /dev/<sd? or hd?> (NTFS Partition), once it is mounted you can use it. You need root access for that.

Code:

man mount

Hi,

You need to find out what type of file-system is installed on the windows partition.

Try :
Quote:

sudo fdisk -l
If it is a FAT partition use :
Quote:

sudo mkdir -p /media/mount_directory
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/fat_dtrive_you_want_to_mount /media/mount_directory
For NTFS drives you have to install ntfs-3g driver and then use :
Quote:

sudo mkdir -p /media/mount_directory
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/ntfs_dtrive_you_want_to_mount /media/mount_directory
