Access second harddrive

  • I can access my first drive (C:) fine but I not sure how to setup my second drive (D:). Should I just had a " cofs2=d:\ " and than a command in the terminal?

     
    • Hi

      You have to add a line to the fstab file. /etc/fstab

      "cofs2   /mnt/D  cofs user,dmask=0777,fmask=0666 0 0"

      And create a directory /mnt/D

      Reboot! :)

       
    • I have tried adding "cofs2=d:\" to the conf file. I added "cofs2 /mnt/D cofs user,dmask=0777,fmask=0666 0 0" to fstab and rebooted. My second hard drive still won't mount and says: /mnt/D does not exist
      Is there anything I'm missing other than the conf file and fstab?

    Hello,

    With "Portable_Ubuntu_TRES.exe", instead of messing with fstab, I edited Portable_Ubuntu_TRES\config\portable_ubuntu.conf
    It contains:
    #shared_folder2=some_drive:\some\path
    Adding below got my D: drive visible:
    shared_folder2=D:\

    The mounted drive shows up under Places => cofs# or /media/cofs#

    Enjoy,
    Howard
