http://askubuntu.com – I recently upgraded a server to Ubuntu 12.04 with a fresh install and my ntfs partitions won't mount as user at boot but I can mount them as user manually from the console with '$ sudo mount -a'. Using 'ntfsfix' reports no problems and chkdisk sees nothing wrong under Windows 7. Are the drives not ready to be mounted at boot and default to root instead of user for some reason? Here is my '/etc/fstab': UUID=E4E6B30CE6B2DDCC /media/Bowles ntfs-3g defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 0 0 UUID=A040C42340C3FDD2 /media/Burroughs ntfs-3g defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 0 0 U (HowTos)
