we  want  to  show in this tutorial  how  to mount NTFS  partition (Windows 7)  in my  example . first thing we  advice  to do is  to install  rpmfusion free and  non-free repository    rpmfusion.org

 

First   thing  we  have  to  add ntfs-3g   driver  to   your  partition

yum install ntfs-3g

 

now  we  have  to  check  NTFS partitions    devices with  fdisk

[root@fedora-home ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x1549f232

Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          13      102400    7  HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2              13       10199    81817600    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3           10199       73943   512020480    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4           73943      121601   382817515+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5           73943      112190   307220480    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6          112190      112254      512000   83  Linux
/dev/sda7          112254      121601    75082752   8e  Linux LVM

 

Now we  see  that   we  have 3 windows  partitions.    /dev/sda2  and  /dev/sda3  /dev/sda5

Now  make a  windoows  directory  on  /mnt  like

mkdir  -p /mnt/win1
mkdir  -p /mnt/win2
mkdir  -p /mnt/win3

 

Now  mount  the  devices  to these  directories   with

[root@fedora-home ~]# mkdir  /mnt/win1
[root@fedora-home ~]# mount -t ntfs-3g  /dev/sda2  /mnt/win1/
[root@fedora-home ~]# ls  /mnt/win1/
bdlog.txt     Config.Msi              hp            pcconf.ini     pcwords.dat    Program Files (x86)        Users        Windows
Boot          CUJBW                   MSOCache      pc_sign.slf    PerfLogs       Recovery                   WebCam
bootmgr       Documents and Settings  NVIDIA        pcversion.txt  ProgramData    $Recycle.Bin               WebCamNXPro
BOOTSECT.BAK  hiberfil.sys            pagefile.sys  pcwords2.dat   Program Files  System Volume Information  win7.ld
[root@fedora-home ~]# yum install  converseen

 

 

with  the  same  method   we  can mount the  other  partitions

 

ow  you  have  to add  these  lines  to  /etc/fstab  to make  this  mount  permanently

/dev/sda2               /mnt/win1          ntfs-3g auto,users,uid=0,gid=500,umask=000,rw   0 0

/dev/sda3               /mnt/win2          ntfs-3g auto,users,uid=0,gid=500,umask=000,rw   0 0
/dev/sda5               /mnt/win3          ntfs-3g auto,users,uid=0,gid=500,umask=000,rw   0 0

 

now  you  can acccess   windows  partitions  easy   to  transfer files  or  folders

[root@fedora-home ~]# ls -altr /mnt
total 48
drwxrwxrwx.  1 root root 20480 Sep  5 22:44 win1
drwxrwxrwx.  1 root root  4096 Sep  5 22:44 win3
drwxrwxrwx.  1 root root 16384 Sep  5 22:44 win2
dr-xr-xr-x. 25 root root  4096 Sep  6 19:53 ..
drwxr-xr-x.  5 root root  4096 Sep  7 09:37 .
[root@fedora-home ~]#
