How about if you have two extra drives, can both of them be mounted to /mnt at the same time? 🤔
No, the last one mounted would win and the first one would be hidden.
09:42:56
@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKielo Alright. So you mount drives to /mnt/exampleDrive1 and /mnt/exampleDrive2 and then perhaps ln to have an easier access? 09:44:28
@tastytea:pixie.towntastyteaOr you just mount them to wherever you need them.09:45:45
@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKieloOh right. 😆09:46:32
@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKielo I have been mounting my other drive to ~/Storage (yeah, I suck at naming) but I think that I'll mount it now to /mnt and use ln since it has pretty much of all kinds of stuff inside so ~/Storage doesn't make that much of a sense. 09:48:40

There's nothing wrong with mounting sruff in home if the user is the only one accessing it.

@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKielo

Isn't this relatively sane way to automount the extra drive through /etc/fstab?

 UUID=blabla       /mnt/seagate    ext4            rw,relatime 0 0

I'm not really sure what the relatime really does even after reading the docs but apparently it's the default option so I figured it must be fine.

@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKielo

Actually I think that I would enable fsck so:

 UUID=blabla    /mnt/seagate    ext4    rw,relatime 0 2

@tastytea:pixie.towntastytea relatime and rw are both defaults, you can just replace that with defaults. 😉 11:41:35
@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKieloGotcha. 😊11:42:19
@tastytea:pixie.towntastytea relatime only updates the atime (access time) if the mtime (modify time) or ctime (change time) are updated, instead of on every file access. It is set either to mtime or ctime, whichever is newer. 11:50:07
@kielo:the-apothecary.clubKieloRight. 🤔11:54:37
