Which partition(s) do you want access to?

In my hard drive I have allocated different spaces. Like the ones in Windows drive C,D,F etc.
When I click on computer it is showing only File System rest nothing
Pl help

So the NTFS partitions? You can mount them with:

sudo mkdir /media/sda5
sudo mkdir /media/sda6
sudo mkdir /media/sda7
sudo mkdir /media/sdb1

sudo mount /dev/sda5 /media/sda5 -o user,rw,uid=1000
sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media/sda6 -o user,rw,uid=1000
sudo mount /dev/sda7 /media/sda7 -o user,rw,uid=1000
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1 -o user,rw,uid=1000

Should then be accessible from the /media folder.

Can you help with this problem?
