Hi I am a newbie to VL. In other flavours of Linux that I have used, I can use the file manager to access files in the windows partition of the hard drive on a dual boot machine. I cannot see this area (NTFS) on VL. I guess I have to mount the windows drive (sda I think), but I don't know how to do this. Can anyone help please?
Did you run VASM to mount the drive?
Find your NTFS partition and go through the steps. Finish with FILESYSTEM>>MOUNT>>MOUNT to have the partition mounted when you quit VASM.
If this doesn't work, post again and tell us what happens.
