I added a new hard drive (sdb1, 500GB) to my system Ubuntu 11.10. I found this line on the Ubuntu help which I added to /etc/fstab
#new hard drive sdb1 UUID=48DCF742DCF728B8 /NewDisc ntfs defaults 0 2
But I kept getting boot errors that the system cannot mount new hard disk as it has serious errors. The disk has only one partition occupying all its space, NTFS, created and formatted via Windows 7 which is on the other partition (sda5) and it had only a few test files on it.
Then I noticed that in fstab file that the system added another NTFS partition like this
# /windows was on /dev/sda4 during installation UUID=BC7A37A77A375D78 /windows ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0
What is the difference between these two entries?
Funny thing is when I change the new hard drive entry in the fstab file to
#new hard drive sdb1 UUID=48DCF742DCF728B8 /NewDisc ntfs defaults,umask=007 0 0
I stop getting boot errors. But I am not sure if this is the right thing to do and if I can keep such settings (umask and last digit o)???
