Ubuntu – How to access a shared volume from terminal


I am attempting to use a shared hard disk(Ubuntu 17.04/Windows 10) with a Plex media server, running as a service on the Ubuntu distribution.

However, it accesses the linux file system, and I cannot seem to find the shared drive there.

If I open "Files" on Ubuntu, I have a "967GB Volume" on the left. How would I access it from the terminal?

Best Answer

The partition, that is shown as "967GB Volume" on the left can also be seen with the command


or if you wish

df -h

You can use the cd command to change the current directory of a terminal window to the mountpoint, where the partition is mounted.

For example

cd /media/cbll/long-uuid-string
ls -l

Please ask if you want more details.
