i have two drives, one ssd and one hdd. i have installed ubuntu on the ssd, and now i want to change the mount point of the hdd (or one of the partisions on it). i do this in disks, and its pretty straightforward. i put the new mount point under home/user/Disk2. and i also put it to mount on startup. now i have a problem; when i start the laptop, the boot time have gone from maybe 20 sec to 2-3 minutes.

why is this?

im sure its because of changing the mount point, i done it back and forth, and it always have the same effect. one thing though, if i change it back to defaults, /mnt/-longnumber-/ it first takes a super slow reboot and then it boots like it should

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

Ok so with @oldfred 's help, i solved it. i put some default values suggested for ntfs partipations directly in the fstab, and now the boot time is back to normal. so Disks doest something wrong. I dont know which oone of these it would be nosuid,nodev,nofail or if it needed the values i put in ; uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=027,fmask=137
