(Note: For this event you may need an internet connection, in case of need to install or download available updates on your Ubuntu OS.)
(Note: For GNOME GUI, I’m not certain on other GUI Environment such as Unity, 😀 , you may try if you want, to see the results.)
Here’s the Steps / Instructions on How to Install and used Storage Device Manager to mount the file system at boot time in Ubuntu
1. Go to Applications then to Accessories then click Ubuntu Software Center. Then search for the keyword: storage device manager
After finally search the keyword, click on the Storage Device Manager then click Install. Then wait until finish the installation.
(Note: It will ask for a administration password, or your own account password, type it and press Enter.)
Or Install it via Terminal, Applications, then Accessories then click Terminal. From there, type the following command: sudo apt-get install pysdm
2. Mount a Hard disk drive or a file system of your choice. (Let’s say in my example the NTFS file system, Storage Hard disk drive).
3. Go to System, then to Administrator then click Storage Device Manager.
4. From there, you can now enable the configuration for automatic mount at boot time.
Again, if you don’t yet mount the drive, it will ask you to configure it now.
(Note: used GParted – click here to follow on how to used it, to locate the exact device or media name, let’s say in my example /dev/sdb1.)
5. Click the device (/dev/sdb1), then click Assistant.
Then Options were given, at the Mounting tab, click / check on the file system is mounted at boot time. Leave the rest as uncheck or not filled.
At Special Files tab, click / check all the options.
At Performance tab, click / check both Update file time for each access and Update directory time for each access. Leave the rest as uncheck or not filled.
At Miscellaneous tab, leave the option uncheck.
6. After all the configuration, click OK. Then click Apply and Close. Restart your computer to see the results.
I hope this helps you out! 😀
