Mount NTFS manually on Ubuntu Linux Server

First, list all the ntfs drives you have: “fdisk -l | grep NTFS”, example output:

/dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2 206848 409599999 204696576 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3 409600000 976957421 283678711 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFA

Second, create a folder to mount the NTFS filesystem on, e.g.: “sudo mkdir /media/ntfs1”

Finally, mount the filesystem to that folder, e.g. : “sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda3 /media/ntfs1”

This can be applied to other distros as well, for example in RHEL or OEL you can just omit the “sudo” and use user “root” to run the commands instead.
