I've got two 2TB drivess: one MBR and the other GPT.
sudo blckid /dev/sdb1
returns a blank.
Partition table scan: MBR: protective BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: present Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT. Warning! Secondary partition table overlaps the last partition by 1970 blocks! You will need to delete this partition or resize it in another utility.

mounting via fstab or -t gives same error when using NTFS or NTFS-3g "NTFS signature is missing"
GParted says one partition is overwriting another, yet windows shows no errors at all. The drive is also mounted easily via MacOs (triple boot)
