mounting FAT and NTFS file sysem in Linux

Pranaam to all Bhai ji _/\_

Today we will learn , how to mount FAT and NTFS file system in linux.

ok , for NTFS file system mounting we need package having name  ntfs-3g on system.
so lets start, first of all i am going to  perform it for CentOS system(supported on RedHat and Fedora too).
if you have repository support for extra package then ok else provide link for extra package by installing "epel repo"

download epel file for your system

for 32 Bit system support download this file

for 64 Bit system support download this file

ok, i am downloading for 32 bit hardware system  using wget command
wget  https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

now install the file using rpm utility

in ubuntu system you can install this package by using command
apt-get install ntfs-3g

okkkkkk, its time to install the package which help system in identifying  ntfs file system
package name is  ntfs-3g  (for ubuntu based system too)
install this package by running this command

yum install ntfs-3g

once installation of package has been done , we can mount out ntfs shit easily :P
my ntfs partion name is  /dev/sdb1
mount point aka directory where i want to mount this partition is  /ica
during mounting we need to specify that file system is ntfs in -t option with mount command
how??? lets do it ;)
command will be
mount  -t ntfs-3g  device_name   mount point

in my case , device name is /dev/sdb1
and mount point is the directory where i want to mount this file system i.e  /ica
so command in my case is

mount  -t ntfs-3g   /dev/sdb1  /ica

 and done >:D<
now you can access your NTFS shit which has been mounted on your system

to mount FAT file system , use command
mount -t vfat   device_name   mount_point (supported on ubuntu and CentOS/fedora/RedHat system)
