I have bought a new 1TB hard disk and formatted in ext4 file system type and attached to my CPU(Already having a HD with Ubuntu installed). Following the answer given here, I tried mounting the partition inside my Home directory(/home/user) to the path /home/user/1TB, by issuing the command
sudo mount -o rw,uid=1001,gid=1001,user /dev/sdb1 1TB/. But each time I am getting the following error.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
dmesg | tail output.

But when mounting by issuing command
sudo mount -o rw /dev/sdb1 1TB/, it mouted succefully, but the
user don't have the permission to create files or directories inside it.
Ultimately, what I need is, I could mount the extra HD to any folder inside my home directory and also want make it permanent. Please advice on this.
