    Gazp8 - Secondary SSD

    I'm loving my Gazelle Professional. I do a lot of photo/video editing, so I've a need for lots of space.

    I've one 512GB SSD as my main hard drive, and I've a secondary 128GB SSD. /dev/sda is the main 512GB hard drive, and /dev/sdb is the secondary 128GB hard drive.

    However, I haven't yet quite figured out the secondary SSD.

    After running sudo fdisk -l here's what I get:

    Disk /dev/sda: 512.1 GB, 512110190592 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 62260 cylinders, total 1000215216 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x0008c868

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 2148 992685546 496341699+ 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 992685547 1000215215 3764834+ 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 992685548 1000215215 3764834 83 Linux

    Disk /dev/sdb: 128.0 GB, 128035676160 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 15566 cylinders, total 250069680 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x00000000

    Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table
    So the 128 has yet to be used. Where do I go from here? I would like it to be automatically mounted when I start the computer... but, again, have yet to figure that out.

    Thanks.

    edit your /etc/fstab file, it it is a ext4 partition on it do it like this
    Code:
    UUID=aa92d082-0e37-4e70-b696-7198daf30c62 /mnt/storage           ext4    defaults        0       2
    change the aa92d082-0e37-4e70-b696-7198daf30c62 to what gparted shows for the uuid (right click the partition-> information)
    your drive will show up in /mnt/storage
    after you run sudo mount -a or reboot

    The only thing I'm seeing in fstab is

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation
    UUID=6fb59d06-ec00-44f4-abcc-0da0f018be93 / ext4 discard,errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /dev/sda1
    # swap was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
    UUID=616eaa19-299e-479b-8dcf-dfc36593f63a none swap sw 0 0 # /dev/sda5

    If you have not formatted it, then you have to use gparted to format it.

    I think with pqwoerituytrueiwoq's instruction you have to make the mount point first.

    sudo mkdir /mnt/storage

    Another set of similar instructions.

    Mount & edit fstab from Morbius1 - suggest using templates instead. Post #6

    Thanks mate, it was easier than I thought. ANd I also managed to upgrade the firmware of the second SSD to the latest version as well while I was at it.

    Cheers.
