How to Mount NTFS and exFAT Partition in RHEL CentOS
Mounting NTFSMounting NTFS partition in CentOS/RHEL will need a simple trick. Here is the step.
$] sudo yum install epel-release
$] sudo yum install ntfs-3g
Suppose if the name of the device is /dev/sda3 and /dev/sda4, then here is the command to mount it from the terminal
$] sudo mkdir /mnt/WinEIf your windows OS is running with any updates or under hibernation, the above command will not work, Here is the solution for that. You can open the drives under read only mode.
$] sudo mkdir /mnt/WinD
$] sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/WinE $] sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda4 /mnt/WinD
if you get the error like shown above, here is the commandNB: Sometimes you need not type "-t ntfs-3g", if the libraries are there, without this attribute also, the disk will be mounted.
$] sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/WinE -ro o
$] sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda4 /mnt/WinD -ro o

Mounting exFAT file system
exFAT is another filesystem supported by the Unix families like (Mac OS). CentOS has a way to
customise for mounting the exfat filesystem.
$] sudo yum install scons gcc fuse-devel rpmbuild
$] wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/SRPMS/exfat-utils-1.0.1-1.el6.src.rpm
$] wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/SRPMS/fuse-exfat-1.0.1-1.el6.src.rpm
$] rpm -ivh fuse-exfat-1.0.1-1.el6.src.rpm exfat-utils-1.0.1-1.el6.src.rpm
$] cd ./rpmbuild/SPECS
$] rpmbuild -ba fuse-exfat.spec
$] rpmbuild -ba exfat-utils.spec
$] cd ../RPMS/x86_64/
$] rpm -ivh fuse-exfat-1.0.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm exfat-utils-1.0.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
The following is optional.
$] ln -s /usr/sbin/mount.exfat /sbin/mount.exfat
Again you can click the icon in the explorer to mount the exFAT partition, in the terminal
$] sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdb2 /mnt/WinC
