So I have this problem with my second hard-drive that I have been trying to fix for quite awhile now with no luck. I have searched around to try to find solutions to my problem but nothing seemed to be quite like mine.
Basically, I have a Windows 8.1/Antergos (basically Arch Linux) dual boot on my 128GB SSD, and then I have a 1TB hard-drive for storing all my other data. I formatted the 1TB hard-drive through Windows because I didn't have Linux installed at the time.
I cannot mount my second hard-drive because it has an "unknown" filesystem, even though I know it is NTFS.
Here's what gparted shows:
And some other (hopefully) useful information...

Here's what happens when I try to mount the drive...
$ sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/ mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.
