comment Documents stored on separate internal drive, Ubuntu doesn't notice on startup
I had to manually create links in that directory using the info @Whisperity provided, which works well for me. However, I still have the binds in my fstab file like you mentioned. Will there be any conflict on my machine with both of these settings enabled?

I predicted your answer already: change the directories to their equivalents located in the /mnt/ directory. The wallpaper and library both loaded without problems on a restart (as a bonus I got GlobalMenu disabled!) I'm going to mark this as the accepted answer since it was clearly written and easy to follow. Thanks for the fix and thanks to all the others who contributed their knowledge!

I tried this out (but I chose my preferred vim over gedit), and I'd like to post some code but don't know how to make it come out properly like in your post. Aside from a typo of my own doing the drive mounted without any errors at the Plymouth screen, but I still have the wallpaper and Rhythmbox library issues. My home directories still don't point properly to the resources on my Documents drive, which I figured would also happen given the failures of the other two features. I gave the drive a label in Windows already, which I replicated in my fstab file.
