I have recently purchased and installed a brand new 8TB Seagate Archive HDD into my desktop computer, and, using the "Disks" program in Ubuntu, I created one 8TB NFTS partition named "MediaStorage" and enabled mounting after booting.
From here I proceeded to transfer about ~1.5TB of data from both my internal HDD as well as from and external HDD to my new HDD. Now, my computer is dual partitioned with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04, and after booting back into Ubuntu from Windows I realized the 8TB HDD wasn't mounting properly on its own.
In Ubuntu, I am able to mount the entire HDD an successfully access all files using "sudo mount /dev/sdb /path/to/location"; however I am unsure how to force it to mount automatically on boot for both Windows and Ubuntu.
Additionally, the same "Disks" program that I used to format/partition the 8TB HDD is now telling me that the partitioning of the drive is "Unknown()" and that there are 2 partitions both called "MediaStorage". One is 871GB and the other is 372GB.
Ultimately I just want to have 1 partition that automatically mounts upon booting into either OS, and I would like to achieve this without having to rewrite all of the files I've already copied over if possible. Perhaps there is a problem with the fstab or partitioning table, but I am unsure where to begin fixing this problem. I have tried to find a solution, but I can't even think of a concise way to word this problem for a google search.
Any feedback, including problems with how I present this question would be much appreciated.
