    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

How to auto mount second hard disk


New member
Feb 7, 2021
Afternoon all

Delighted to say that after several months, POP OS generally working great, aside from the occasional breakage re NVIDA drivers

The only standing issue I seem to have is that my laptop has 2 hard disks with a 256Gb SSD as the primary disk and a 1TB HD as a secondary

Is there an easy way to auto mount the second disk ( I am not proficient to edit an "fstab" file)

At present, I have to open the "disks" utility and then mount the drive from there if I want to be able to use it

Grateful for your advice

Open Disks and select the drive you want to auto mount. Click the cogs for a menu and select "Edit Mount Options". Tick the appropriate box. You may have to toggle off user session defaults to do it.
