Almost all my data is stored on my Data Drive (/dev/sda1) I moved my Documents and Music folders and so on to this drive. Now I want to add it to the Nautilus (1:3.26.4-0) sidebar in Ubuntu 18.04.

It doesn't need to mount somewhere else. The custom paths to folders like Documents in the sidebar are working fine.

I just want a nice button to click on to take me directly to my data drive so I don't have to bother with going through Other Locations - Data anymore. Since it's not a folder I can't just drag and drop it to bookmark it.


Open the directory in the file manager. Use the 3 dots menu and select to bookmark. The icon looks like it does in most browser apps. The Ubuntu page is here
