To automatically mount Windows drives, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo blkid  

So you can get the UUID of the drive. Make sure that you get the UUID of the drive with TYPE="ntfs".

enter image description here

Then edit the fstab config file

gksu gedit /etc/fstab  

And add the line at the bottom of the file as shown in the image below. Make sure to replace the UUID with the UUID of your NTFS drive. Save and close the file

Then create mount points, and take ownership by doing:

sudo mkdir -p /media/Windows  sudo chown -R <username> /media/Windows
