in my system there are two SSDs, one on which Manjaro is installed, and one that is intended to be used mainly for data storage:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS
nvme0n1 259:0 0 465,8G 0 disk
├─nvme0n1p1 259:1 0 300M 0 part /boot/efi
└─nvme0n1p2 259:2 0 465,5G 0 part /
nvme1n1 259:3 0 1,8T 0 disk
└─nvme1n1p1 259:4 0 1,8T 0 part /run/media/<my-user-name>/64264aae-2607-4bcf-afbe-dcc0b9fc33b1
I managed to create an ext4 partition for the second SSD and it is automatically mounted in /run/media, but only accessible for root.
I want to have the second drive permanently mounted at boot to /home/<my-user-name>/Data and have full rights for my user account, i.e. read/write/execute/access through programs, for everything on this drive, just as with the drive where the OS is installed on.
Unfortunately, after reading through a lot of answers to similar questions, reading and watching tutorials, I’m just more confused than I was before. It seems that in one way or the other, this should involve editing the /etc/fstab file, but for someone who’s not an expert in this matter, this seems incredibly dangerous, since one error can brick the system. (Which some users seeking help reported to have happened to them, after following advice …)
Some guidance on how to make this second SSD usable would be highly appreciated!
