Question

problem using USB drive with NTFS

I am running CentOS 7 on a HP Pavilion laptop. I have a USB drive that is formatted with NTFS that I want to copy some files from. When i plug it into a USB port I see it in the left hand panel in Dolphin but when i click on it to open it I get the following error message:

An error occurred while accessing ‘Home’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /run/media/rrigo/PSE Backups: Command-line `mount -t “ntfs” -o “uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177” “/dev/sdb1” “/run/media/rrigo/PSE Backups”’ exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: unknown filesystem type ‘ntfs’

I thought NTFS was part of mount. Should i mount it using a terminal window with SUDO? Any and all help in this matter is appreciated.

I tried to mount it manually with the mount command and got the same error, unknown file type NTFS.

Hi @raygolost

You need to install fuse-ntfs-3g: https://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/NTFS
