To mount an NTFS drive we can also use a disk label only. We can safely change the label from Windows or by using ntfslabel . See Constant UUID on USB install how to rename partitions? Needless to say that by using ntfslabel we can also change a drive's UUID (aka serial number). To avoid negative effects on the UUID dependent Windows file allocation we ...

If you want to use udisksctl, you can use the --options flag to specify what options to mount with. In your case, the command will be udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/sda1 --options "defaults,noatime,commit=300,autodefrag" (the quotes might not be needed, but they are there just to be safe). Note that only safe options will be passed through to the mount ...

Just use Tab completion to help you out: sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw,auto,user,fmask=0022,dmask=0000,exec /dev/sd<tab> /mnt/NwVol sudo mount -t ntfs -o ...

Don't move anything. Just use links. For example, say your normal user is usera and your second one is userb. Presumably, userb is a brand new account and doesn't have any data you want to keep. So, delete the directories in question and recreate them as links, then set up the right permissions: Delete the directoriess and recreate as links sudo rmdir ...
