Whatever you do, you do at your own risk. I can only recommend and do not claim 100% of the solution much depends on your environment and other settings. I can not guess. Addition of materials and fixing bugs is welcomed

After another reboot of the "raspberry", the USB-to-SATA controller suddenly died, I had to change the "box" and for an unprecedented reason, the disk settings were reset.

Once again I was looking for recipes on the Internet and after spending enough time, I decided that I needed to make a note on hand. It's simple, but when you do it once every five years, you have to remember which commands, where and why.

And so there are several steps:

  1. Getting data about a connected disk
  2. Setting up Auto Mount
  3. Configuring Samba Balls

And so let's go, I'll be succinctly brief as before:



  • Getting data about a connected disk

To find out the data about the connected disk, run the command:

sudo blkid

and we see the result and the disk ID is important to us:

/dev/sda1: LABEL="data" UUID="8A8A7B898A7B7095" TYPE="ntfs" PARTUUID="da8c9ec1-01"

I have one disk with NTFS so I don't have to bother with disk identification

  • Setting up Auto Mount

Now we need to open fstab and enter the data for auto-mounting

sudo nano /etc/fstab

adding the auto mount line

UUID=8A8A7B898A7B7095 /mnt/data ntfs auto,exec,rw,user,dmask=002,fmask=113,uid=1000,gid=1000,nofail 0 0

where, /mnt/data , is the place where we mounted the disk

then we reboot.

And we check that we have a disk on the way of mounting, if not, then we do

sudo mount -a

  • Configuring Samba 

Now you need to edit the file to access the resource over the network

nano  /etc/samba/smb-shares.conf

we add data on the disk to the end of the file:

path = /mnt/data/
writeable = yes
read only = no
browseable = yes

where, /mnt/data/ , is the previously specified path of the mount point. Then we overload and go to the disk over the network.

Additionally, I still password-locked the entrance in principle. This greatly restricts its use as a media source, but it has long been just a file storage and media center for my TV.
