Moving to Ubuntu, I have a drive with windows on a drive with Ubuntu on and 4 other ntfs drives

3 of which appear fine in both systems
1 however works fine on windows (single ntfs volume) but in ubuntu the drive appears in the disk utility with a 134 MB "Microsoft Reserved Partition" and 2TB of Unallocated Space

Is there any way I can get this volume to be mounted in Ubuntu with out moving all my data to another driver formatting and then moving back again

you can install ntfs configuration tools from ubuntu software to auto mounte ntfs volume , also ntfs partition can be writable with using this good tool, dont forget that after installation, open terminal and write "sudo mkdir -p /etc/hal/fdi/policy"
