I have installed Ubuntu Desktop 13.10 on a 250GB SSD which works OK. I also have a 2 TB HDD where I have my Virtualbox disks installed and when I boot the 2TB does not mount. When I hover over the drives in Files, the SSD is mounted, but the 2TB drive says "2 TB: Mount and open 2TB". If I click the drive the files appear and Virtualbox loads the guest OK.
I followed the steps in Is there a program to mount all of my drives automatically?. If I turn off the slider and click the mount automatically then reboot, the system tells me it cannot mount the drive. Clicking "S" continues boot, then I manually mount the 2TB.
What's puzzling is there is an eject button in Files on the 2TB drive. Has this drive somehow been added as removable like a USB drive?
3/18/15: After @organic-marble's comment about fstab I tried deleting/re-creating the partition, no help. Tried mounting the drive with the options added by the Disks program and received this error:
Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda1: Command-line 'mount "/mnt/46d5deb0-05ac-4031-9ca6-f7fe4af6f024" exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepageor helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
dmesg | tail revealed:
377.111993 EXT4-fs (sda1): Unrecognized mount option "x-gvfs-show" or missing value.
Found this article on a bug: Fails to auto-mount device & Error mounting system managed device(Ubuntu 14.04) Changed x-gvfs-show option to comment=x-gvfs-show and it now mounts and shows in the user interface.
I copied my Virtualbox virtual disk file back to the drive and receive an error that I'll have to research it. Since the mount point changed after re-creating the drive it won't recognize the old file.
thanks to all who answered.
