So I had this working on my last build, but had to redo the box due to my own faulty partitioning. The problem I'm getting with ntfs-3g is
Code:
LinuxBox ~ # mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc /mnt/backup/
NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/sdc': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sdc' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?

I made sure that FUSE is in the kernel
Code:
Symbol: FUSE_FS [=y]
   Type  : tristate
   Prompt: FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) support
      Location:                                                                                                                                                                                         
   (1) -> File systems
      Defined at fs/fuse/Kconfig:1

The drive also has the right flag, at least I think it does
Code:
Disk /dev/sdb: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes, 1250263728 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xf4dcae3e

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1            2048  1250260991   625129472    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

Disk /dev/sdc: 300.1 GB, 300090728448 bytes, 586114704 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000001

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1   *        2048   586110975   293054464    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

I haven't done anything with the drives in forever, so I'm not sure what is going on. Did I miss something in the kernel? Did I miss something when emerging ntfs3g?

Thanks for any/all help on this.

you typed:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc /mnt/backup/

and I guess you want:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/backup/

Oh for the love of God I am retarded. I swear that didn't work before. Anyways, thank you for the easy/simple fix for this.
