Shortly, yes.

On the other side, it depends what file system you're using. If, by default, you instaleld your ubuntu with ext4 file system, then it supports up to 1 EiB and it should be alright.


Everything seems fine and it will support it easily.

Ubuntu is a plug and play so as soon as you will plug your External it will be detected automatically and will be mounted(by default) in /media directory.
