    Mount Windows GPT drive on to Linux machine (VM or real)


    Hi there
    just a quick note for people who want to use GPT (NTFS formatted) HDD's on a Linux machine directly rather than via sharing from Windows. Ensure package ntfs-3g is installed -- often is by default --this will give read and write access to NTFS files.

    Remember a GPT disk will probably have (at least) 3 partitions on it so if you run lsblk command you will see something like this

    The main windows data partition here is sdf3 which is what must be mounted so as root (su / sudo) simply type the following command :

    mount /dev/sdf3 -t auto -o rw /mnt/DV0 where /mnt/DV0 is say your mount point --- this then mounts the partition as read / write on the mount device and the auto option choses the correct file system automatically.

    If you have /mnt/DV0 or whatever mount point you mount the HDD on in your samba.conf configuration file then that HDD can be shared across other computers in your network too.

    Cheers

    Install Linux in a Windows 10 Virtual Machine?

    What is a good virtual machine software I can use to setup a Linux environment? I am having too much trouble dual booting Mint with my Windows 10. Is there a quick way to setup up VM for Linux?

    Windows HOST, attach Linux external USB to Linux VM


    Not a direct solution but wouldn't it work if drive was formatted as exFAT instead which can be read or written on Linux (may need to add support).

    Perhaps putting a small fat 32 partition on drive so you can get drive mounted in vm, and then use tools in vm to read xfs partitions might work?
