HOW TO MOUNT AN NTFS PARTITION MANUALLY IF IT DOESN’T MOUNT AUTOMATICALLY
- Check if Paragon NTFS for Mac is installed and properly activated or if a valid trial version is installed on your computer. For this purpose, navigate to System Preferences > Paragon NTFS for Mac > Info.
- Check whether the required NTFS partition is already mounted by the built-in Mac OS X NTFS driver, and unmount it if it is. For this purpose, open Disk Utility, select required partition on the left, and click “Unmount” on the menu bar above.
- Find out Identifier of the required volume. Choose the volume and go to “Info”, or use the hotkey combination cmd+I. You will find this information there:
Disk Identifier : diskXsY
where X and Y are natural numbers. We will need them later.
- Create a mount point using terminal:
sudo mkdir /Volumes/TEST
- Perform this command:
For 14 version:
sudo /usr/local/sbin/mount_ufsd_NTFS /dev/diskXsY /Volumes/TEST
For 12 version:
sudo mount_ufsd_NTFS /dev/diskXsY /Volumes/TEST
where diskXsY is identifier of the required volume. For completing the operation your user account password will be required.
