I have Windows and Ubuntu installed. I'm today cleaning up my home directory and noticed there is a downloaded file I want to move to my Windows partition. I don't want to use GUI. I know it works. Nautilus appears to mount the partition with Windows on it so I can access it. Doesn't teach me anything about using the power of GNU/Linux from the terminal. Upon trying
cd /dev/nvme0n1p2 it says
bash: cd: /dev/nvme0n1p2: Not a directory. I'm guessing this is because it's not an actual device but pertains to symbolise one ie like a symlink? Upon doing
ls -lh /dev/n*p2 it appears in the permissions column with a b which means block, correct? I thought with it being a block ie a device like a drive it could be mountable. I run
mount /dev/nvme0n1p2 and it says
mount: /dev/nvme0n1p2: can't find in /etc/fstab. Upon trying to navigate to it Ubuntu doesn't want to treat /dev/nvme0n1p2 like a directory. And I can't seem to get to the point where the file representing this block can be accessed as a directory like when you might connect an external HDD and it is mounted ready to be accessed.
I thought if I mounted that partition I would be able to access it as it seems like that it what the system is doing upon allowing me to access my Windows partition. I'm clearly missing a fair chunk of the process out here and so would appreciate any advice. I also saw bits about fstab in my playing with sshfs whereby it appeared I could configure fstab to mount remote file systems upon startup and maintain persistence. I can't see that being required in order to simply access the partition temporarily without it being mounted everytime I run Ubuntu. I'm still learning so appreciate I may be well off the mark. As the returned error status shows the partition is not found in fstab, which is confusing me.
