Mount an NTFS drive

  • I just added a new already NTFS formatted (with windows) disk to OMV, I went to the storage section and as you can see from this picture 4WBCY3ythe disk (called 4TB-RED) shows up as n/a instead of showing the available and used space like my other NTFS disks, why is that?

  • why did OMV mount it like that?

    No idea. Are you sure it is read only or you just don't have the right permissions? What is the output of: grep ntfs /proc/mounts

  • grep is definitely installed. I had a typo. grep ntfs /proc/mounts

    Yes, I tried grep ntfs /proc/mounts and I got nothing

    so I tried cat /proc/mounts and I got this:

  • I forgot that ntfs drives show up as fuseblk drives. Your drive is mounted read only but I would guess it might be because it wasn't shutdown properly on windows last time? I would try:


    sudo mount -o rw,remount /srv/dev-disk-by-label-4TB-RED

    Probably, I got an e-sata port on my PC, so I hot-removed the drive.


    this is the result of the command:

    "Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again."

  • You may have to plug it back in to the windows machine and shut it down properly.


    sudo umount /srv/dev-disk-by-label-4TB-RED

    sudo mount /srv/dev-disk-by-label-4TB-RED

  • I hoping that once the pargon ntfs code is actually in the Linux kernel that Linux will be able to properly fix an improperly shutdown drive. But until this, we know the fix.
