How to Mount a Windows Hard Drive in Linux

Install Required Packages

In order to perform the mount, we need to install the ntfs-3g package, which is a Linux NTFS userspace driver. This package comes from EPEL if you're using CentOS/RHEL, so if you have not yet configured your system to use the EPEL repository, run the following command.

[root@centos7 ~]# yum install epel-release -y
Now we should be able to install the ntfs-3g package from the EPEL repository.

[root@centos7 ~]# yum install ntfs-3g -y
Otherwise if you're using Ubuntu/Debian, you should just be able to run 'apt-get install ntfs-3g' straight away. In my Debian 8 installation it was already available so I was able to mount NTFS without any problems.
