I know hot to assign a mount point to my usb hdd(ntfs) in terminal but as soon as it's unmounted and mounted again, it goes back to default folder that is /media/Seagate Expansion Drive

What i did so far:

sudo mkdir /media/myusb

then mounted

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/myusb

So how to assign myusb folder as default mount point?

This has been answered in the Ubuntu Help (Rename USB Drive):

sudo ntfslabel /dev/sdb1 my_new_label
