# show the devices available – in my case it is /dev/sdc1

fdisk -l

# from root

mkdir -p /media/USB

[root@mega ~]# mount /dev/sdc1 /media/USB
mount: unknown filesystem type ‘ntfs’

# so the os new it was and is an ntfs file system – it was right – you get the same error if you add -t ntfs

[root@mega ~]# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /media/USB
mount: unknown filesystem type ‘ntfs’

# so add the packages that will allow the OS to recognize ntfs as follows:

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

yum install epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

yum install ntfs-3g

# Now redo the mount command

[root@mega USB]# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /media/USB
The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
The file system wasn’t safely closed on Windows. Fixing.

# and it did fix and mount it – took a minute
