leave a comment »

Please follow these at your own risk
NTFS and FAT32 are the partitions used by windows to access them from UBUNTU follow these For NTFS just type open terminal and type
sudo fdisk -l

then see which partition is of NTFS (i am taking it as /dev/hda1) then to mount it to /media/windows type
sudo mkdir /media/windows
sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fsab_backup
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

add the following at the end of the file
/dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 0
save the file then in terminal type
sudo mount -a

For FAT32 partition
repeat the above and just add
/dev/hda1 /media/windows vfat iocharset=utf8,umask=000 0 0
in the file
Make sure u name the folders differently for FAT32 and NTFS and also change the text to be copied accordingly NJOI
