I had initially gotten good results in using
/etc/fstab to specify mounting points for my hard disks. But after meddling around with folder permissions, my disks refused to mount.
What I was doing:
chownto give permissions to Transmission (didn't get it to work anyway)
- After one of many reboots, my disks stopped being mounted.
blkiddid not show my 2 disks
Out of curiosity, I commented out the lines in
/etc/fstab, and to my surprise, the two above steps showed the disks (not auto-mounted), and I could successfully mount them.
- I need to assign specific permissions to the disks, as I'm trying to use one of them for owncloud
- Thus, to my understanding, the disks need to be added to the
/etc/fstabfile to work
The 2 pertinent lines in
UUID="4A58B8EF58B8DB41" /media/pi/EdwinHDD1 ntfs-3g auto,users,permissions, 0 0 UUID="BEEAEC08EAEBBB33" /media/pi/MediaHDD ntfs-3g auto,users,permissions, 0 0
I'm pretty much at my wits end. Any advice please?
