I originally had a dual booted system alternating between Windows 10 and Manjaro (Budgie DM). Windows was installed in the first 500GB (NTFS) of my HDD as I wasn’t able to reduce due to a few restrictions when i installed the OS i couldn’t understand why. I then parted my remaining 400 GB into :
- 245 GB - Manjaro - EXT4
- 162 GB - Common Storage - NTFS. (or Local Drive D)
It was a working setup with Manjaro recognizing both NTFS partitions and mounting them on request from the files application.
Heres where the Problem started:
A couple of days ago i decided to take the plunge and expunge Windows off my Laptop since i was primarily working on Manjaro anyways. So i decided to format my Windows Partitions into and Ext4 Filesystem to directly work with Manjaro. After I did, i restarted my laptop only to discover, Manjaro no longer indicated other available partitions in the Files Applications.
I fired up terminal and ran
blkid and got the all the partitions recognized.
I then Mounted the Local Drive D to
/run/media/local as this is where it would generally get mounted. The drive was mounted but it always mounted as a folder. Same with the Newly created Ext4 Partition.
I updated fstab to add the local partition but it would mount the local media and fail on mounting the new Ext4 partition and enter into emergency mode.
I want to have both partitions recognized and mounted properly as Other Drives to my Laptop. How do i resolve this issue?
