You can mount ntfs a couple of different ways in linux. Here is how you do it with ufsd or ntfs-3g. ufsd needs a kernel module installed. ntfs-3g can just be installed as a program.

so if you have ufsd installed you can use ufsd (ideally it should be faster than ntfs-3g)

with ufsd:


modprobe ufsd ## check it might already be activated “lsmod
mount -t ufsd /dev/sdc1 /mnt

mount readonly like so: mount -t ufsd -o ro /dev/sdc1 /mnt


with ntfs-3g:


apt-get install ntfs-3g

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt
or: ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt

mount read only like this: mount -t ntfs-3g -o ro /dev/sdc1 /mnt
or: ntfs-3g -o ro /dev/sdc1 /mnt
