Adding USB Drives to a Headless Ubuntu Linux Box

| Comments

After adding some USB2 (NTFS formatted) drives to a headless Ubuntu server, they were not auto-mounted so I had to find them and mount them, with only remote terminal access.

List Hard Drive Devices:

sudo fdisk -l

Create a mount point:

sudo mkdir /mnt/starbug1/terra06

and run this command to mount (NTFS formatted):

sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/starbug1/terra06 -t ntfs
