Ubuntu: mounting external drives forcefully

I am using both XP and ubuntu in 2 separate hard drive in the same pc. Couple of days ago i have installed XP in the secondary hard drive. I dont know why but after that I couldnt mount or see inside my drives where the xp is installed from ubuntu. Then I found help in ubuntu forum.http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=603

I am just explaining what I have done:

opent terminal

tareq@User: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/disk/by-label/drive_name /media/a_directory/ -o force

If the directory is not created in media directory you have to create it first. with the command

tareq@User: sudo mkdir /media/a_directory

then run the above command

hope this works


Work is fun!
