If the installed hard disk becomes too small and the computer allows the installation of a 2nd disk, you can configure such 2nd disk to mount automatically during booting time. To do so you have to:
Press ALT+CTRL+T at the same time to start a terminal, and type the following command to initiate the file manager in superuser mode:
sudo pcmanfm &(enter).
- Navigate to the folder /mnt and create inside it a new folder with the name of the 2nd disk.
Get the UUID (ID of the disk-drive) of the 2nd disk by typing the command
sudo blkid, search for your 2nd drive in the list and write down its UUID.
Type the following command to edit the fstab file:
sudo nano /etc/fstab[Enter]
Add at the end of the fstab file a new line as follows (in one single line):
UUID=[add here the UUID of the 2nd disk you wrote down above]
/mnt/[add here the name of the 2nd disk folder you created above] auto defaults 0 0
(Make sure to leave a space character between each entry)
Leave the file editor by pressing CTRL+X then Y (to save) and [Enter].
Optionally, to allow access for all users to your 2nd disk do as follows: Open your file manager in superuser mode again
sudo pcmanfm &, go to your 2nd disk folder and right click on it with your mouse. Under properties, select "Access rights for others", check the "Allow create or delete new files / folders", and then "Apply to all folders".
Re-boot your computer. The new disk should be automatically mounted.
