I am attempting to access my Win7 partition from Ubuntu with the
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 mywin7 -o ro
The system responds that it is unable to find the mount point. I get
the impression that if I enter the following command:
sudo mkdir /media/mywin7
followed by the command:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/mywin7 -o ro
Should I be successful and safe in accessing my Windows 7 partition in
read only mode without doing any damage to either system?
If I wanted to do the same thing on a Windows-only system, booting
Ubuntu from an installation DVD, the 'mkdir' command wouldn't be able to
write to the DVD, so this wouldn't work, would it. Could I get around
that by using d thumb drive?
