Install USB HDD as "standard" partition instead of automounting to /media/...
I hope the subject is clear enough. I have a 1.5TB external USB HDD. Currently, when I plug it into my box, it appears on the current user's desktop just like any other USB drive (i.e., a thumb drive).
What I would like to do is do incremental backups to this drive. I'd like to be able to mount it and use it just like any other partition (i.e., if I installed a second internal drive) without interfering with the automount behavior for any other USB drives (i.e., thumb drives or any other external USB HDD's I might use for one reason or another).
Can anybody give me any pointers?
