# yum -y install ntfs-3g# yum install fuse# modprobe fuse
Identify NTFS Partition
# fdisk -l
Mount NTFS partition
First create a mount point to mount the NTFS partition. (here I’m naming it d_drive)
# mkdir /mnt/d_drive
To mount the partition
# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/d_drive
If you want to make mount point permanent at the boot time, add the following line at the end of /etc/fstab file.
/dev/sda1 /mnt/d_drive ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
Umount NTFS Partition
# umount /mnt/usb
