Mounting HDD

  • I am trying to find out how to go about mounting a hard drive I have for using as a Samba share. I have tried the standard fdisk -l so I can locate the mount then would have used the mount command and edited the fstab to configure it to mount everytime I rebooted. However, I have finding out that almost everything is locked down pretty hard. So I am curious how do I go about this?

    I am using a Raspberry Pi 2 model B with LibreELEC 7.0.0.

    Thank you for your help

    All external disk devices are to be auto-mounted at boot time, including USB harddrives.
    Sometimes Linux does not mount Windows formatted diskdrives because of an incomplete/faulty removal of the harddisk.

    How about connecting your harddrive, and get some information via SSH via the following commands:

    blkid | pastebinit
    mount | pastebinit
    dmesg | pastebinit

    and share the returned URLs here.
