I have a 1TB ext4 formatted hard drive other than the one that Fedora has been installed. It is not mounted on boot time and after boot I need to mount it myself. I just click on file manager, it asks for password and it is mounted. How I can change the settings to mount it on start up of computer?

You need to edit /etc/fstab to mount it during bootup

Basically, you add a new line similar like this

/dev/sdb1     /data     ext4     defaults     1     1

Change first column to your hard disk device name, 2nd column to path that you want it to mount (make sure you mkdir that directory), and the rest is as is

If you want to mount it now, on command line, type

mount /data

and your mount tools will search /etc/fstab for /data and mount the correct partition

Once rebooted, your Fedora will automount your disk
