Error trying to mount volume to new droplet

I have a volume that I’ve been using for a few years, and want to attach it to a new droplet with an updated Ubuntu OS. I followed the instructions, but got the following error:

root@dodatax:~# mount -o discard,defaults,noatime /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DO_Volume_volume-nyc3-03 /mnt/volume_nyc3_03
mount: /mnt/volume_nyc3_03: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.

The volume was working fine with an Ubuntu 20.04 droplet, but cannot be mounted on the 22.04 droplet. How can I proceed?

Hi @digitaloceanda5,

I actually experienced the same a few days back, see if you have the ntfs-3g package. If not, install it and see if mounting the volume will work.
