Mounting NTFS Filesystem

NTFS filesystem can be mounted on Linux systems by installing a kernel module that supports NTFS filesystem. A packate ntfs-3g can be used to installed such a module and ntfs utilities.

yum install ntfs-3g

If the repository cannot find the package, you might have to install epel repository.

For Centos 5: rpm -Uvh For Centos 6: rpm -Uvh

Now you can install the ntfs-3g package :

yum --enablerepo=epel install ntfs-3g

Now load the fuse kernel module :

modprobe fuse

Finally you can mount the disk as below :

mount /dev/sdx /mnt/ntfsDrive
