Previously, I prevented auto-mounting of a particular partition at boot by the following line in
UUID=<alphanumeric> /media/windowsHDD ntfs user,noauto 0 0
At some point in the last year, this failed, and the partition was automatically mounted on boot. I attempted the following, which also failed.
/dev/sda1 /media/windowsHDD ntfs user,noauto 0 0
Thinking that perhaps I was bitten by this bug, I removed
user, but that also failed.
UUID=<alphanumeric> /media/windowsHDD ntfs noauto 0 0
Is there a way to prevent auto-mounting in fstab?
