Notes: Volumes Larger than 2.2TB must use GPT and not MBR (In case you decide to try formatting and need to choose)
Create a mount point for your array
Set permissions for it:
chown -R root:users /mnt/NTFS
chmod -R 777 /mnt/NTFS
Find the device ID for your NTFS array:
Note the volume by it’s size. In this case, there was a 14TB volume under /dev/sdb
However, NTFS volumes created in Windows 7 usually have a small (100MB) disk label partition called sdb1, and the actually primary partition (14TB) called /sdb2. sdb2 is the partition you want to mount to /mnt/NTFS as it is the actual storage partition.
Add an entry in /etc/fstab so it auto mounts at boot
add to bottom of fstab list…
/dev/sdb2 /mnt/NTFS ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
To close the nano editor, hit Control-X, then Enter to save.
Reload all of your mount points:
Now see if you can read and write to your newly mounted NTFS array. If so, copy some data to it. Then reboot into Windows and see if your data is available in Windows File Explorer.
