I have a dual boot Debian system with windows partitions. I never use and access those partitions from within Linux. But they appear first in the gnome files program. There are 4 disks shown in the left pane of the gnome files program which I never use: HP_TOOLS, Recovery Image, Windows, and Windows RE tools. How can I move all these to the bottom of the pane. So that my bookmarks appear first?

    The order in the side pane is defined in nautilus source code. I don't think you can move groups of items (e.g. bookmarks, filesystems, user dirs etc) up or down. You could however hide those partitions as you don't use them anyway... Jun 24 '15 at 10:16
  • Thanks I used the gnome-disk-utility to edit mount options. Where I deselected Automatic mount option, mount at startup and show in user interface. Jun 25 '15 at 12:58
  • yep, that is yet another way to hide them (it involves editing /etc/fstab and adding x-gvfs-hide etc). Jun 25 '15 at 13:20

This doesn't answer the placement question but solves my issue by hiding the unnecessary partitions from the left menu.

Use the gnome-disk-utility to edit mount options. Then deselect Automatic mount option, mount at startup and show in user interface.
