Shared Partition

First make sure that the drive or partition is formatted in ntfs.
Backup fstab:

sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup

Install the ntfs package:

sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g

List all the drives and their respective UUID codes:

sudo blkid

Find the drive you wish to mount in linux and copy its UUID.
Append it to the fstab file (of course change the UUID and mount point):

echo "UUID=372AB00C5A2CC625 /media/Data ntfs-3g defaults,auto,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=002 0 0" >> /etc/fstab

(optional) edit the default directories on the system:

nano .config/user-dirs.dirs

Reboot the computer.

sudo reboot
