You can easily mount internal hard disk drives using any GUI file manager in Linux distros. But using terminal emulators as a file manager is fun and it gets the work done without fuss. So, here’s the procedure:
- See which drive you have to mount using lsblk command in terminal:
- This would show you theavailable storage devices. Find your drive from here. Find the exact name e.g. sda4.
- Now, create a directory in /media with any name.
- Now mount this disk drive in this any_name directory.
mount /dev/sda4 /media/any_name
- Alternatively, you can create temporary directory in /mnt, e.g.
mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/any_name
- Here I’ve given example with the sda4 disk drive. You can use any, or to be precise, the disk drive you want.
