I have a dual boot machine with Ubuntu and Windows, with a data partition to share files between both systems.

This data partition had once a FAT32 filesystem, and I re-formatted it from Windows as NTFS.

As you can imagine, now Ubuntu can't start properly.

So I'm getting into Recovery Mode to edit /etc/fstab.

My question is: what should I change the following line to?:

UUID=6789-ABCD  /data  vfat  utf8,umask=007,gid=46  0  1
