I am using ubuntu 12.04 and running it via vmware (probably wont make a difference, no vmtools applied yet). I logged in via ssh and looked at my external HD, the folder was blank. After logging into the start screen a few seconds later my external drive is available.
It appears mount isnt mounting until i login? is there a way to change this? I normally just leave the window in the background and simply use ssh. Extra info: The drive i believe is NTFS
