Default Mounting internal NTFS storage drive

I've used Linux(Debian,Fedora) mostly over the years, am not experienced with the BSDs so much, recently install TrueOS. I've "googled-for-answers" to determine how to mount the internal storage drive, which is formatted as NTFS. I've install ntfs-3g, fusefs-ntfs and tried to mount the drive
ntfs-3g /dev/ad0 /mnt/storedata
with no success.

Looking at the output of "gpart show" I noticed the TrueOS disk is GPT and the NTFS storage disk is MBR
 63  1953525105  ada0  MBR  (932G)

=>    63        1985        - free -  (993K)

        2048  1953521664     1  ntfs  (932G)

  1953523712        1456        - free -  (728K)

=>       40  488388832  ada1  GPT  (233G)

         40        512     1  freebsd-boot  (256K)

        552  479979520     2  freebsd-zfs  (229G)

  479980072    8388608     3  freebsd-swap  (4.0G)

  488368680      20192        - free -  (9.9M)

Does that explain the problem, or am I missing something further required, for mounting the storage partition?

Well long story short, I did use
ntfs-3g /dev/ada0s1 /mnt/storedata
which I believe was the correct syntax, but did not appear to work. However, that was when booted into Mate DE, when I logged into the Lumina desktop there it was, my "storedata" drive mounted and ready for access. I have no clue as to why it would not mount in Mate.
