view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I want to simply mount a 2TB HPFS/NTFS. I havve created a mount point and here is what I've tried unsuccessfully: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/external I am using ubuntu and have ntfs-3g. Sudo fdisk -l and blkid show the device ID and partition but it does not show up in mount. Thanks for the help (HowTos)
