some time ago I installed ubuntu 20.04 to my laptop. I believe that I used the default options for mounting partitions. I am now having trouble understanding how it is set up and I would be grateful for some help.
Here are the contents of the fstab file:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/nvme0n1p2 during installation UUID=e19799b8-02b4-470b-ab41-97ac0f760845 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /boot/efi was on /dev/nvme0n1p1 during installation UUID=50D6-96DC /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1 /swapfile none swap sw 0 0
When I run the Disks utility, it indicates the presence of 2 disks: 1) 256GB flash drive 2) 2TB SSD.
The 2TB SSD does not appear to be listed in the fstab file, though it does appear in Thunar at
The information displayed in the disks utility includes the following:
Contents: Ext4 (version 1.0) — Mounted at /media/erik/0d210810-0cf4-48f3-ba54-47a08261c8e5
If I click on the gear icon and then "Edit Mount Options", it displays a screen which lists information including:
Mount Point: /mnt/0d210810-0cf4-48f3-ba54-47a08261c8e5
So here are some of the things that I do not understand:
- How come the 2TB SSD is not listed in the fstab file?
- I suppose that a command gets executed during startup to mount the drive, where can I see that command?
- As mentioned above, when I inspect the drive in the disk utility...
The main screen shows the mount point as:
And the "Edit Mount Options" screen shows the mount point as:
How come those two values are different?
My home directory is on the 256GB flash drive, how can I move it to the 2TB SSD?
How can I change the name of the directory at which the 2TB SSD is mounted?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
