Are you even using FreeBSD? I'm seriously wondering.Okay, I think I've tried everything I can find on the Interweb but to no avail. Here is what I tried, maybe I went off the rails along the way.
Downloaded NTFS-3G, ./configure, make, sudo make install. Everything looks good. Then I unmounted /dev/sdc1 then mounted the USB drive using: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/owner Or sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/owner Or sudo mount.ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/owner. All of these mount the USB drive fine and I can read all the files (that has never been the problem, the USB drive has always mounted and viewed fine). Every way of mounting the USB drive does Not give me any additional information on the files that has been lost.
Sorry, apparently missed that. You're in the wrong neighborhood. Rule #7: FreeBSD Forums Rules(Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)
How is so hard to pkg install the_de_you_want? If you're not able to use the package manager to search and install or even man packagemanager (that serves to any operating system), maybe you should stick to an operating system that do everything for you instead.So I thought I'd just do a Quick install of FreeBSD and continue on . . . Not to Bash but OMG, where do I start?!...HOURS later and I still don't don't even have a GUI. Wow....Now, I remember why I went w/ Ubuntu. Unless your a computer science grad there's No way your going to get this OS up and running. Thanks again for all your help.

You start with reading the handbook: FreeBSD Handbook. I know reading manuals is typically not done but reading the handbook is well worth the effort. You might actually learn something from it.where do I start?!
We've helped people get started with a lot less computer knowledge but you're going to need to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. FreeBSD is not an OS to be taken lightly, it's going to require a certain amount of configuration and effort from you to get things working the way you want it. It's fine if you're not up for that, but then FreeBSD isn't for you and you should just stick to Ubuntu and ask your questions on Ubuntu focused forums. This forum is for FreeBSD users, we provide support for FreeBSD exclusively.Unless your a computer science grad there's No way your going to get this OS up and running.
