Auto mounting drives at startup

Hi,

I’m a new user to LINUX and I’m having trouble working out how to set it so that my extra hard drives mount themselves automatically at startup. Does anyone know how to do this easily without too much code?

Thanks

fstab

Filesystems to be mounted at startup are listed in fstab.

However, that is only really useful for filesystems that are always available, not external hard drives. Best solution for those is probably to mount them on use.

Bash Scripting

You could do a bit of bash scripting to accomplish what you require.

Get the bash script to check on boot up if there are any additional devices plugged into your PC, ie. /dev/sdbX etc.
If there are then mount them appropriately to /mnt/mountHere
