If you are operating in a dual-boot environment, where one partition is linux and the other partition is Windows, here’s how you mount your Windows partition in read/write mode from your linux partition:
- Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. A terminal window opens.
sudo mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=022
where is the path which you want your partition to be mounted to, then press Enter.
There is another groovy way to set up your environment so that your Windows partition is mounted automatically at login. This employs the NTFS Configuration Tool, which can be installed through the Synaptic Package Manager.
