View Full Version : [SOLVED] Secondary drive mount issues...

I have a secondary drive that isn't mounting quite the way I expect. When I boot and look in the /media directory, none of the three partitions are showing up.

The odd thing is if I go to Places, they show up there, and if I access them from under Places, THEN they appear on my desktop (as an icon), AND, they appear in the /media directory.

Is there a way to mount these upon boot, and if so, how do I do that?

Thanks,

Andy

You can mount the partitions on boot, by adding them to /etc/fstab. Have a look at this page (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab) for more on fstab.
