View Full Version : [ubuntu] Accessing A Mounted Drive Via ssh / winscp

So I mount a drive to my other PC, let's say and can access just fine in Ubuntu, with full permissions. When I'm using SSH client, like WinSCP for example; How can I access that drive? I thought you could find it in /mnt and find it in there, after I mount it but cannot find it. Is it possible to access this via WinSCP so I can move some files over?

if its an external usb drive or similar its probably mounted in /media. On the box with the drive connected navigate to the drive in nautilus and then click the icon that looks like a little piece of paper with a pencil on it just above the list of "places" on the left side of the nautilus browser. The icons to the right of the little paper icon should change to a text box which reveals the path to the device.

I have figured out external devices and CD-ROMS, but still can't find the 'link' to the already mounted "mapped" drive.

Run a
df -kh Does the drive show up in that list? The last column will show where it is mounted.
