The latest versions of Ubuntu are not only compatible with other file formats but also allow us a number of features that are innate in our system and that make we can work better with these hard drives or these file formats.
This little tutorial makes us learn how our Ubuntu automonte in its start the hard drive we want or just say it does not mount. It is a practical thing and we don’t need to touch the terminal for thatThat is, it is for beginners.
Mounting Hard Drives is a simple process with Ubuntu
To get started we need to go to the Dash and look for the “Disks” app. Once the app has opened, look on the left the drive or hard drive which we want to mount at startup or simply not load when starting Ubuntu.
Once we have marked it, in the bar on the right we click the wheels and we go «Edit assembly actions …»When we press this option, a screen like the following will appear
In this screen we have to choose the options we want, like that the partition or hard disk is mounted when starting Ubuntu or simply not mounting. We can also name the hard drive and have Ubuntu say it with that name, we will achieve this by registering the field «Show name«; another thing we can do is show the partition on the interface or just not show it on the interface.
After we have marked the options we want, we have to go to the accept button so that the settings are maintained. Then we close the program Disks and ready. When we start Ubuntu with the next session these settings will already be working and Ubuntu will have to mount hard drives that we marked.
Personally I think it is a quick and easy method to set up hard drive partitions and mounts, but it’s not something you need to use regularly, although it’s always good to have it on hand don’t you think?
