Will DietPi automount an external drive?

Post by AJRobson »

I have a PI running raspian and plex with an external drive filled with music and audiobooks. When I set it up I had to run a few scripts to get it to automount the HDD so plex could see it each time I rebooted.

If I move over to DietPi would I need to do the same again or is there something built in that will automount the USB HDD each time?

Hi,

you can use drive manager to have the HDD mounted. Drive manager will create an /etc/fstab entry to have the disk mounted after reboot.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
