This is kinda embarrassing, but I’m really struggling to get this Windows partition to automount correctly
There are 2 NTFS drives with a partition each in the system, in addition to the Linux ones. One is a USB drive (called “Expansion Drive”, for some reason), that I do not want automounted. The other is an IDE drive (I think, might be SATA…), and I do want this to automount. I have already symlinked Documents, Pictures & Music from /home to the relevant My Documents folder under Windows. Problem is, I cannot get it to automount at boot. When trying to mount it post-boot, it asks for the root password - I do not want this behavior, as I will not be giving out the root password. Once the drive is manually mounted, the symlinks work perfectly.
For info, blkid:

I should know this, but I’ve been over it trying different things, and it won’t play!
