How do I mount my NTFS and FAT32 drives?

Post by kiwi2309 » Tue Jun 30, 2015 2:58 pm

Hi people,

I am new to GhostBSD and have the following questions:

I have two HDDs; on the first one is Windows with its NTFS drives, and I have a FAT32 Stick.

How do I mount these in Ghost BSD?

P.S.: I have fusefs-ntfs installed.

Thank you in advance!

Antonio

fat32 is easy:

Code: Select all

mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt
check dmesg for real device name of your usb fat32 stick

for NTFS, we are adding support for it in the next ISOs,
I'm unsure about what is available or not, basically you need to use fusefs-ntfs package.

See if

Code: Select all

man fusefs-ntfs
gives you the info you need.

For me when I plugged in a USB FAT16 or FAT32 Thumb Drive GhostBSD 4.0 automatically mounted the drives.

I mostly run GhostBSD in a Virtual Machine with either Virtual Box or VMWare Workstation. I do have a P4 that I do run GhostBSD 10.1B1 on but I only have one hard drive in the machine that has GhostBSD on it so I don't know how it will behave with a FAT16 or FAT32 hard drive in the machine. But with a USB Drive it auto mounts like most other Operating Systems do.
