Making folders on specific internal & extranl hard drives


How does one make folder(s) on specific storage mediums (ie internal/external hard drives)? Trying to make a folder(s) on a USB storage device ( /dev/sda ). In advance, thank for any assistance.

Welcome to LQ!

In Linux we make directories, not folders. You should first mount the drive, cd to it, and then do ->
# mkdir -p /dev/sda/photos for instance.
If you want to make another directory under your user directory, then do ->
$ mkdir -p ~/new_directory because ~ stands for /home/username, in my
case, /home/mingdao

Some good reading ->
$ man mkdir
