I am trying to automatically mount 2 drives that have been previously formatted in windows and have all my research (so I am trying to tread carefully), but running into some questions.
The HD are NTFS formatted, and in fstab I already see them, but they do not mount automatically:
/dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1/ linux_raid_member defaults 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/sdc1/ linux_raid_member defaults 0 0
So Ubuntu thinks this is a RAID setup, but the drives are not in RAID and have different information (legacy from two other drives that I was attempting to set up in RAID).
So wonder if by just changing the line information to:
UUID=xxxxx /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 ntfs-3g defaults locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
UUID=xxxxx /dev/sdc2 /media/sdc1 ntfs-3g defaults locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
xxxxx = the actual UUID.
would be enough or do I need to do something different?
Also: A) Not sure if each drive should have its own locale, or they can share locales? B) Would removing the linux_raid_member section affect the reading of the drives?
Any input would be much appreciated.
Thank you, I first setup the directories under home:
Next, edited fstab:
UUID=xxxx /home/data/one auto defaults 0 0 UUID=xxxx /home/data/two auto defaults 0 0
However, when using
sudo mount -a
I still get that the directories do not exist. When restarting ubuntu - at startup I get the problem mounting the drives" however, I cannot tell if it is because it cannot identify the drives, or if it is because of problems with the code line in fstab. Any thoughts?
Should I use ntfs-3g instead of auto, for example?
