I am a complete novice to Ubuntu/Linux.

How do I mount an USB powered external NTFS drive? I've installed both Mount Manager and NTFS Configuration Tool. This drive is encrypted having used Windows Bit Locker. I know the password.

BitLocker is not supported by the Linux NTFS driver, you will need to copy the data to a plain NTFS partition.

Could I copy that data from my external drive to another partition on my main hard drive? –  Doug Dec 17 '10 at 23:08
Using Windows, yes –  João Pinto Dec 18 '10 at 1:00
