With the fstab file, how can I mount my /dev/sda3 NTFS partition at boot with full access by any user?

You should add this line to your fstab:

/dev/sda3 /Acer ntfs-3g defaults,user,rw,umask=000 0 0
  • I have a similar problem with Kubuntu 14.04 (dual boot with Windows7); but why do you need the ntfs-3g rather than just ntfs and is this likely to be the same with my desktop? – WGCman Jan 10 '16 at 8:53

    @WGCman You don't necessarily need to use ntfs-3g, ntfs is most likely an alias for it. – meskobalazs Jan 11 '16 at 9:03
