just upgraded to 18.04 and installed alongside win10, I followed a guide to do so. I must admit when it said where to mount the partition used for storage I was dubious, but did it anyway.

It said to mount it /home/storage. It appears when I use lsblk, but I can't figure out how to mount it.

Here is my lsblk output, the drive in question is sda.

Thanks in advance.

  • sda is the entire hard drive. sda3 is already mounted at /home/storage – Panther Aug 24 '18 at 19:10
  • I thought so, however I can't access it. – Scott Dimelow Aug 24 '18 at 19:24
  • Perhaps start a new question with more details – Panther Aug 24 '18 at 19:40
  • I'm not sure what else is needed, what would you suggest? – Scott Dimelow Aug 24 '18 at 22:24
  • Why do you say you don't have access? What file system on the partition? – Panther Aug 24 '18 at 23:48
