Mounting Windows drive wich is in another drive

Did some research but I really don´t know how to see and use the files on my windows installation.
I have 2 drives the linux is on the second drive and windows on the other. On lsblk command I can only see the linux drive. How I enable the other one to show the files.

Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to EnOS’ forum @thilugo!

Do you have ntfs-3g installed?

Check:   pacman -Qi ntfs-3g
Install: sudo pacman -Syu ntfs-3g

Ok, I installed it. But I cant find the second device, only sda.

Could you post the output of the sudo parted -l ?

Modelo: ATA WDC WDS100T2B0A (scsi)
Disco /dev/sda: 1000GB
Tamanho do setor (lógico/físico): 512B/512B
Tabela de partições: gpt
Opções de disco:
Número Início Fim Tamanho Sistema de arquivos Nome Opções
1 1049kB 135MB 134MB Microsoft reserved partition msftres
2 135MB 874GB 874GB ntfs Basic data partition msftdata
3 874GB 1000GB 126GB btrfs
4 1000GB 1000GB 315MB fat32 msftdata

That ntfs partition is one windows has on this drive. But it is not the one I want to mount wich is on the other SSD. That is not showing at all.

Please make sure that hibernation and fast start up is disabled in Windows and perform a “proper” shutdown. I am not totally sure that this will help or is the cause of the issue. If the drive still does not show up, please wait for more advanced forum members to chime in and assist you you on this one.

What does lsblk -a show,
for example I have 1 nvme M2 SSD disk and 1 spinning rust device, so I see

$ lsblk -a
sda           8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk 
└─sda1        8:1    0 931.5G  0 part /media/Music

└─nvme0n1p9 259:9    0  33.9G  0 part [SWAP]

Sorry for the delay, rough week. First I wanna say thanks for the welcoming. Hope to add something to this community.
Posting lsblk -a

Thinking here, my guess is that I messed the installation somehow, because I need to manually press F12 everytime I want to boot EnOS. Then GRUB doesn´t even know my other drive exists.

Could you see both drives when you were installing EnOS?

If I remember correctly, yes. It’s been a while.

Based on the lsblk output it looks like your second disk drive is not connected :frowning:
lsblk lists all block devices, so IMO all storage devices are listed with that command.

But when I boot windows it’s there.

Oh! that is weird, I’m stumped - don’t know what to suggest next :frowning:
