    Ubuntu tries to mount deleted partition

    On startup my computer tries to mount a partition which I deleted (called Misc) and combined with the space of another. I get this message:

    The disk drive for /media/Misc is not ready yet or not supported. Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery.
    I also notice that the folder for the drive is still listed in nautilus. How do I get rid of it once and for all?

    Edit the fstab folder to remove the partition line causing it to look for the misc folder.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/fstab

    ..and also delete the mount point (/media/Misc).

    (stlsaint's suggestion will get stop the system trying to mount the now-nonexistent partition and get rid of the error message, while removing the mount point will make the drive disappear from Nautilus)
