For some reason your install thinks that the 1Gb disk is a "file"
That makes sense & seems to be the case.


OK, I followed these instructions & mounted the drive at /media/HDD. https://mintguide.org/system/369-mou...inux-mint.html
After reboot I am able to access & as far as I know (which is not much about linux) everything looks alright in the "Disks" program.

Does everything look correct here? I don't know what all this means other than it shows my hard drives.

sudo fdisk -l

In the terminal type
Code:
cd /media/HDD
then type
Code:
ls -l
and post up the output.
The output of fdisk and fstab look fine

The output of those commands lists all the files on the /media/HDD.
I have timeshift saving snapshots to this drive. Would it be a better idea to set it up on the same drive the OS is installed?

I use a different disk for snapshots.
In the list from ls -l do the files show ownership by your current user name?
If you do ls -l from /media what does it show?

Looks like it's showing ownership.

Yup, looks OK from here.

Code:
cd /media
ls -l

This is being a bit obsessional TBH because I think that fixing your fstab now means that the disk is being seen and mounted correctly. Hopefully it will keep working for you!

Thank you for all the care, help & support. The link I posted did the trick as far as I can tell & I saved it for future reference.
Thanks to you & frankbell.
