I have installed Manjaro 20.1 (Gnome) in my laptop alongside Windows 10. My partition table is like below:
256 GB SSD - Windows 10
870 GB HDD - Data (Music, photos etc.) (/dev/sda1)
60 GB HDD - Manjaro (/dev/sda4)
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
dev 3.4G 0 3.4G 0% /dev
run 3.4G 1.7M 3.4G 1% /run
/dev/sda4 59G 7.7G 48G 14% /
tmpfs 3.4G 75M 3.4G 3% /dev/shm
tmpfs 4.0M 0 4.0M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 3.4G 47M 3.4G 2% /tmp
/dev/sda2 511M 332K 511M 1% /boot/efi
tmpfs 696M 60K 696M 1% /run/user/120
tmpfs 696M 88K 695M 1% /run/user/1000
/dev/sda1 870G 680M 869G 1% /run/media/abhi/F62277A22
Each time I boot Manjaro, I need to mount this /dev/sda1 partition (NTFS) by clicking it from file manager, it’s not automatically mounting.
How Can I automatically mount this NTFS partition (/dev/sda1) during boot?
I have my music collection in that partition and adding those to Rythombox each time after boot is a pain. I need to keep this partition mounted during boot.
Thanks in advance.
Add the partition to
/etc/fstab. Simply create a mountpoint ─ i.e. a “folder” ─ for it under your
/home/abhi/music. Then, edit
/etc/fstab and add the following line…
/dev/sda1 /home/abhi/music ntfs-3g auto,defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022,utf8 0 0
This can change. Better to use UUID, which can be retrieved with
It won’t change if there’s only one drive.
The partition is no longer write enabled, it’s read-only
This is my /etc/fstab:
/dev/sda1 /home/abhi/Data ntfs-3g auto,defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022,utf8 0 0
previously it was write enabled when I mount it by clicking it, now it’s auto-mounting…but read-only.
Do you have Windows Fast Boot enabled? If so, disable that, or else the kernel will regard the filesystem as dirty and will mount it read-only.
I also recommend adding
rw as a mount option to the filesystem, like so…
/dev/sda1 /home/abhi/Data ntfs-3g auto,rw,defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022,utf8 0 0
