I've added permissions to an external USD HDD to allow users to access the drive over a wifi network. I was having an issue with giving permissions for other users to access the drive. I solved it via this thread (Sharing between ubuntu and mac - argh, help!).
In short, I made a mountpoint and assigned with the drive to the mountpoint using the following terminal command "sudo mount -t vfat -o users,umask=0000 /dev/sdb3 /media/myDrivesNewHome".
This works great but when I restart the machine or unmount the drive, UBuntu creates and reassigns the external drive to a new mountpoint [mountpoint1].
Any suggestions on why this is happening and how I can make it permanent?
