View Full Version : [all variants] specifiying the mounting folder for a hard drive disc ?

December 5th, 2010, 05:43 PM
Hello everybody,
I have a little problem concerning a hard drive ...

In fact, it's an external hard drive but i use a "rack" to plug it in a internal sata plug (via e-sata plus on the hard drive). however I also use it with a usb plug from time to time

currently i use this configuration in fstab but, i'm not allowed to unmount it (as a simple user)

# mount WORK
UUID=3CB6D26AB6D22464 /home/zib/Work ntfs defaults 0 0
so how could i do to specify the mounting folder and being able to unmount it without using "sudo" ??


ps : if anything is unclear please tell me!

Adding umask, uid and gid might help.

Your mount definition will look like this in /etc/fstab.

UUID=3CB6D26AB6D22464 /home/zib/Work ntfs-3g defaults,utf8,umask=007,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1
