Automount windows partition
I am running Ubuntu 13.04
I have a windows drive in the machine. It is accessible from the file manager under ubuntu, but when I create network shares on the drive they are lost after a reboot.
The drive pops up in /etc/mtab
I think I need to put the drive in /etc/fstab so it is automatically mounted on boot rather than mounted when first accessed. I think this will mean the shares "stick" and do not need to be created on every reboot. I may be wrong......
In etc/mtab the drive is listed as below.
/dev/sda1 /media/rob/New\040Volume2 fuseblk rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,bl ksize=4096 0 0
What would I need to put in to fstab to auto mount this drive on boot. I have tried copying the above line to the fstab file but this produces an error on boot and the drive is not accessible.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
