Basically, I was following this tutorial to enable writing to an NTFS Volume (which works when the Volume has a LABEL or UUID).
I have an external USB drive with an NTFS volume that doesn't seem to have a label or a "Volume UUID", therefore I can't use
/etc/fstab. How can I target this volume in fstab so that I can do something like
LABEL=box none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
UUID=56A9A02B-0590-458E-9493-1DECC2A8F109 none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
The following is what
diskutil info /Volumes/box shows. As you can see there's no VOlume Label or UUID:
❯ diskutil info /Volumes/box Device Identifier: disk3s1 Device Node: /dev/disk3s1 Part of Whole: disk3 Device / Media Name: Untitled 1 Volume Name: box Mounted: Yes Mount Point: /Volumes/box File System Personality: NTFS Type (Bundle): ntfs Name (User Visible): Windows NT File System (NTFS) Partition Type: Microsoft Basic Data OS Can Be Installed: No Media Type: Generic Protocol: USB SMART Status: Not Supported Disk / Partition UUID: 56A9A02B-0590-458E-9493-1DECC2A8F109 Total Size: 1.0 TB (1000168488960 Bytes) (exactly 1953454080 512-Byte-Units) Volume Free Space: 725.5 GB (725534765056 Bytes) (exactly 1417060088 512-Byte-Units) Device Block Size: 512 Bytes Allocation Block Size: 4096 Bytes Read-Only Media: No Read-Only Volume: Yes Ejectable: Yes Whole: No Internal: No
NOTE: In the fstab example above, the UUID I tried is that of
/dev/disk3s1, which seems to have no effect. I've been able to apply fstab rules on other NTFS volumes when diskutil showed volume labels and uuids, which are missing in this case.
How can I write fstab rules for this volume?
