I can't open any files (music, video, any type of files) on my second hard drive via Wine. If I copy that file to home folder, then I can. But I don't want to copy each file (I haven't got much space on first one) How can I make it work?


Create a link to the second hard drive

  1. Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T
  2. Run ln -s /path/to/second/hard/drive ~/second-hard-drive (replace /path/to/second/hard/drive with the actual path to the second hard drive)

This will create a link called second-hard-drive to your second hard drive inside your home directory. You can use that as if it's a regular directory containing everything in your second hard drive.

  • It didn't work. I don't know why. (( – Steve Nov 27 '16 at 8:03
  • Did the link appear and does it contain the contents of the second hard drive? – Chai T. Rex Nov 27 '16 at 8:04
  • I'm not seeing anything new in home directory. But if I type that code again, it says that link exists – Steve Nov 27 '16 at 8:10
