You cannot "lock" partitions to the launcher in that way. To have it always appear, you would need to configure it to be automounted on boot, or when you log in. Your question is however, also a duplicate of I think, How to mount NTFS drive at startup.

Just try to use Fstab as demonstrated to auto-mount and then make a launcher to the mount point. – hexafraction Jun 11 '12 at 17:46
