This question already has an answer here:

One of my start up application uses a 2nd hard drive. When I start my computer it always says that the files have gone missing, when in reality they hard drive is just not mounted. The mount point is /media/stuff I am new to Ubuntu. I am not well knowledge with bash and the terminal. Are there any GUI applications that I can download form the software center or some other place that will allow me to easily set-up auto-mount. I see that others have asked this question but my case is different because the 2nd drive is also ext4


The HDD is 2TB and is aplit up like this:

  • 1TB windows 8 (NFTS)
  • 1TB Ubuntu (EX4) |Mount point should be /media/stuff

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Is it necessary to use a GUI application for this? If you don't need it, it is very easy to just add an entry for your hard drive in /etc/fstab to automatically mount it on startup. This is the Linux way. What filesystem is on the hard drive and where do want to mount it? – user54813 Oct 19 '13 at 12:43
  • Well that doesn't matter.. You can use the GUI tools to mount your ext4 file system also.. If you want to mount every time you open your sytem then I'd like you to post the output of these commands: sudo blkid and cat /etc/fstab.. But I'll tell you the traditional CLI way. It would help you to learn the way also.. Reply.. – Saurav Kumar Oct 19 '13 at 13:05
