This tutorial describes how to mount a Windows partition on Ubuntu if you find it isn’t mounted automatically. We will use the UUID of the partition in mounting. I will describe how to mount Windows partition whenever Ubuntu is booted.
1. Find the device you want to mount. To do this, run the following in a terminal
$ sudo fdisk -l
Windows partitions will usually be in ntfs format. Usually it is at /dev/sda2 or /dev/sda3 and you may be able to differentiate the windows partition from a windows recovery partition by comparing the sizes.
2. Find the UUID of the windows partition by running the following in the terminal:
$ sudo blkid
Find the one corresponding to the Windows partition and have it handy.
3. Back up your file systems table configuration file (fstab) by running the following the following in a terminal:
$ sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.orig
4. Edit fstab using your favourite editor. e.g.
$ sudo gedit /etc/fstab
5. Assuming we want to set the mount point for Windows to /media/windows, add the following line to fstab
$ UUID=the-uuid /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults,user,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
Where the-uuid is the UUID you found in step 2. Save the close the file.
6. create that directory by running :
$ sudo mkdir /media/windows/
7. Unmount the partition and remount it by running these in a terminal:
$ sudo umount /media/windows
$ sudo mount /media/windows
