the fact of real shit

add new hard disk into ubuntu more than 2TB size


will list available device

parted /dev/sdd

considered device “sdd” from lsblk output

(parted) mklabel gpt
(parted) mkpart primary ext3 0 100%
(parted) print
(parted) quit

mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdd1

this command will format this hard disk into ext3 file system as we instruct by parted command

mkdir /home/data

mounting point directory creating

mount -t ext3 /dev/sdd1 /home/data

mounting formatted hard disk into target directory


try to find ID of new hard disk to write into fstab so that after restart our hard disk will mount automatically

sample output of blkid

/dev/sdd1: UUID="20e4b16b-4d4c-4053-b6f4-a2c103f2db2f" TYPE="ext3" PARTLABEL="primary" PARTUUID="33658d68-726f-4398-992f-2aaafebe17ff"

vi /etc/fstab

give an entry for our new hard disk at the end of this file

example entry

UUID=20e4b16b-4d4c-4053-b6f4-a2c103f2db2f /home/data ext3 nofail 0 0
