Automounting second disk on Ubuntu

Sometimes we need to add second hard drive on our Ubuntu. And do not want to mount it after each loading.

Open console Super+T and sudo -s 

  • List your drives and find id of needed - fdisk -l
  • For example our is /dev/sdb1; cd /mnt && mkdir data && chmod 777 data
  • Edit fstab - vim /etc/fstab; Add new line /dev/sdb1 /mnt/data auto defaults 0 0
  • mount -a

P.S. You may also create your mount directory directly in the root (/) for convenience.

Welldone.
