    QuestionQuestion

    I have 2 disks (system and data) in my computer.
    The data HDD has two partitions, one for media and one for private data (encrypted with veracrypt). The mount points are: /media/[myusername]/Media for media, and /media/veracrypt1 for my private data. So far so good.

    The problem is, I replaced the the data HDD with a bigger one (same partitions), and now I cannot use my old mount point for the media partition. I can use /media/[myusername]/Media1, /media/[myusername]/Media2 and so on, but not /media/[myusername]/Media.

    When i mount it into /media/[myusername]/Media, it is empty. The private data partition (mounted with veracrypt) works fine.

    Does anyone know why and how to solve it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Accepted AnswerAnswer

    When mounting a NTFS drive using fstab you need to create the mount point and change permissions on the folder to 777 ..then add a line in your fstab like the following example:

    UUID=<the drives uuid number> /path-to-mounting-point ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
    
    UUID=F858A91658A8D522 /media/mountpoint ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
    

    You can find the UUID by running sudo blkid
