I've recently become an Ubuntu convert from windows 10, and i've really loved it so far. It's really far better than windows for development and alot of other things I do regularly.
However, there are 2 problems that I cant seem to be able to solve. I have 2 card drives, a 128GB SSD, and a 1TB HDD. Previously, my windows will be installed on the SSD, and the various programs on the HDD. Initially, I reformatted my SSD, and installed Ubuntu 16.04 on it. Only after installing ubuntu, did i go and reformat the HDD Into NTFS. This has caused some issues.
1) I followed a few stack overflow guides, that told me i can still install programs on the HDD in ubuntu, just by finding where it's mounted and installing there. its mounted under
I've installed dropbox, anaconda, and other stuff there, but i realise dropbox throws a "media directory changed, relink or exit" something error , and all my symlinks / programs are NOT accessible until i click the harddrive icon in the launcher to view that drive. Then magically the symlinks and stuff will work again. Is there a way to fix this? I dont want to have to click the drive in the launcher every time i restart my computer.
2) I dont know why whenever on load, it shows me a grub menu, i only have ubuntu installed. BUt the options are: ubuntu, ubuntu advanced options, memtestx86, some other memtest, and windows 10 loader (/dev/sda1). Why do i have a windows 10 loader? i clean installed ubuntu, there shouldnt be a loader! selecting the loader loads a blank screen which goes nowhere. I suspect i screwed up somewhere with LVM, but im not really sure.
Would appreciate any guidance from the awesome Ubuntu community!
Thank you so much for reading! :)
