Mount NTFS Partitionin in CentOS 6.x using NTFS3G

NTFS-3G is an open source cross-platform implementation of the Microsoft Windows NTFS file system with read-write support.

Installing NTFS-3G

# 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
