I have multiple OS in my desktop in which I use recoll and recoll lens for desktop search on Ubuntu.

I want to search my NTFS (Windows) partition from Ubuntu desktop. How can I do it?

I have looked in to preferences but don't know how to add Windows partitions in that which can be search from Ubuntu?

Once you mount the windows partition (it's probably already mounted under /media/...) you can add it to your recoll index through the recoll settings gui just like any other folder.
