NTFS Headless Linux

NTFS may be the best file format for large-sized drives. To get things working under linux–especially Ubuntu headless linux servers–simply install the ntfs-3g drivers:

sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g

If the drives are on external USBs, add them to the /etc/fstab to get them to load on boot:

/dev/hdd1 /media/disk1 ntfs defaults 0 0

and with a label:

LABEL=NAME /media/disk1 ntfs defaults 0 0
