Use fstab (Linux) to mount a Windows partition

# in terminal, get a partition list 
# to get the path to the one you
# want to mount

 fdisk -l

# then create the target/mount path  

mkdir -p /mnt/win

# Open etc/fstab with a text editor
# and append the following

# mount windows ntfs
/dev/sda1 /mnt/win ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

# Save fstab and restart linux
# open /mnt/win to see windows files
