Mount your ntfs drive on boot in Ubuntu

So you’ve got an NTFS drive you want mounted when your Ubuntu machine boots? Time to pull up your favorite editor and modify /etc/fstab.

This is what I ended up with:

/dev/mapper/sil_aiaiahddacai1 /media/Storage ntfs-3g defaults,gid=1000,uid=1000,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

Replace the gid and uid values with the ids of your group and user. Run id to get these values.

I also had to make sure I created the mount point, otherwise it would fail:

$ sudo mkdir /media/Storage

Anything I’m missing? So far it seems to work just fine.
