I have android-x86 along side ubuntu-16.04 I have installed android in a 16GB partition in my harddrive. I was wondering if it is possible to access other partitions from android as it just shows nothing in the files app. It would be pointless because all my pictures videos or other files are in those others partitions. I am not an expert so please let me know if additional information is needed.

Yes, you can! If you are new on Linux, it could be a little tricky. Open terminal (if you don't have, install one), type:

mkdir /storage/windows
ntfs-3g /dev/block/sdaX /storage/windows

where X is the partition that you want to mount.

  • Why is it "windows"?

  • For the terminal, Termux is probably the best choice now for Android.
