I know hot to assign a mount point to my usb hdd(ntfs) in terminal but as soon as it's unmounted and mounted again, it goes back to default folder that is /media/Seagate Expansion Drive

What i did so far:

sudo mkdir /media/myusb

then mounted

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/myusb

So how to assign myusb folder as default mount point?


This has been answered in the Ubuntu Help (Rename USB Drive):

sudo ntfslabel /dev/sdb1 my_new_label

    Thanks. This page led me to fstab page, edited /etc/fstab and voila! – Adige72 Feb 4 '13 at 13:40
