I apologize as I'm rather new and learning as I go. I have an Ubuntu PC acting as a server, to which I can connect via SFTP just fine through WinSCP on my Win10 PC. I want to access it's 2nd & 3rd HDDs, which contain all the data I'm SFTPing into for in the first place.

I don't know how to even go about trying to access these other drives (called "z" & "x") and typing in a manual directory gives me a "directory doesn't exist" error. I don't know how it should be formatted in the first place, either.

I have also tried installing Samba & using the "sharing" option for the two drives, but the Ubuntu PC doesn't show up as a shared device.

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

  • There are no drive letters ("z" or "x") in linux. The drives and their partitions are exposed as block devices in the /dev/ folder. If they are automatically mounted, you can find them in `/media/<yourUsername>/``. If not, you'll have to mount them manually (see e.g. this Q&A). – danzel Oct 14 '19 at 2:40

I knew this would be a dumb question. After looking for over an hour, I stumbled on a comment somewhere that said secondary drive folder locations are found in the /media directory. And there they where!
