Mounting a Hard Drive on Ubuntu Linux During Boot with Shell

The line required for mounting a device consists of six fields which are separated by a space or tab. These fields include the device reference (either device name, UUID or LABEL), the folder where the device will appear, the file system, mount options, the “dump” flag, and the priority for file system check during system startup. Alternatively, you can have more control over your mounts by editing the file and specifying different mount options.

    Startup Applications

    (search in Dash or select from the gear-menu on top unity panel), click


    and in the

    Add Startup Program

    window fill the required fields. (In the


    field specify the full path of the script, but here simply using

    should work as it’s created in your


    directory. Or you instead of creating script, just use the command to mount here in the


    field.) Click on


    and you’re done. On next log-on the partitions should be mounted.


In lieu of that, you have the option to modify the


document which allows for greater management of your mounts through the specification of diverse mounting choices.

Solution 2:


sudo mkdir -p /media//

First, generate the route. Afterward, access the /etc/fstab file.

sudo  /etc/fstab

and add

/dev/sda3 /media//  defaults 0 0

to the end. Type then

sudo mount -a

to validate /etc/fstab immediately.

To gain further insights, refer to the resource titled “Creating the /etc/fstab File.
