Ok so i moved from windows to ubuntu 12.04 32bit yesterday and im still learning the folder structure etc of *nix systems. What im trying to do is create a symlink from my 2nd hard drive's, which is supposed to be mounted in every boot on /media/media, folder named Music (so /media/media/Music) to ~/Music.

Even though it works while im logged when i reboot the symlink breaks. Any ideas why? Thanks in advance

You could add the second drive to fstab so that it mounts on every boot. That's what I would do.

A good page on the subject is at Ubuntu help and a practical example is at this site.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – RolandiXor Jun 30 '13 at 21:21
