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 http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

For Centos 6:

rpm -Uvh http://mirror.sfo12.us.leaseweb.net/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

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
