PySDM – A user friendly application to automount your disk in Ubuntu
If you are dual booting Windows and Ubuntu, you will find that Ubuntu does not auto mount NTFS partition by default. Everytime you login, you have to mount it manually. There is a simple way to fix this problem. You can use the application PySDM. It provides a friendly user interface and is very simple to work with.
PySDM is a Storage Device Manager that allows full customization of hard disk mountpoints without manually access to fstab. It also allows the creation of udev rules for dynamic configuration of storage devices
How to install it?
Open terminal and enter the following command:
sudo apt-get install pysdm
Auto mount your disk
Goto System > Administration > Storage Device Manager
This will open the application. The left panel shows the list of partitions. Select the desired partition.
Note: The partitions are labelled as sda1,sda2,sda3,etc. To identify which is the required partition, open GParted (System > Administration > Partition Editor). All the partitions will be displayed alongwith their size, file system and labels.
- Once you have selected the partition, click on the Assistant button on the right pane.
- Check the box The File system is mounted at boot time.
- Uncheck the box Mount file system in read only mode.
- Click on OK button and apply the changes
Now your NTFS partition will auto mount on startup.
