I have a secondary hard disk (8 TB, ext4) that does not auto-mount on OS startup despite "auto-mount" being set to "on" within the "Mount Options" of the "Disks" utility application.
How do I enable the auto-mount option to have this effect?
I am running 14.04. The disk is housed within a trayless removable rack and is present prior to powering the system. There is no problem using the disk once I have mounted it manually.
