i don't know much about xfce,
but you can put the drives in your '/etc/fstab' file
(first create the mountpoints as root, then edit fstab, matching your mountpoints)
- Code: Select all
/dev/sda5 /media/server ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/Se7en ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
/dev/sdc2 /media/backup ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
warning: It does have a disadvantage,
everybody who can login to your computer also has full read/write access to your drives.
If you want, you can restrict, or forbid other users to access the drives by delete 'defaults'
and add disk quota or set user ID (uid) and/or Group ID (gid)

please note that some options are filesystem specific.
