This is the best method I found to mount a NTFS partition at boot on ubuntu 14.10.  This method may work on other versions as well, but I have not tested.  It will increase your boot time by a few seconds but the impact is only a second or two which is acceptable for most systems.  


  1. open /etc/fstab with sudo and your favorite editor.
  2. Add the fstab entry below for the desired NTFS drive:
    UUID=473577933B1627FB /media/Data\040Drive ntfs nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
  3. Replace the UUID and mount path with your drive UUID and desired mount path.
  4. Save and Reboot, your partition will auto mount and you will have full permissions.
