    Question Harddrive not mounting after upgrading to 11

    I was running 10.3 and had a harddrive mounted at /mnt/storage. I then installed 11.0 (preserving my /home) and now my harddrive isn't detected. How do I get this drive discovered and re-mounted?

    russes78,

    Are you able to mount it manually from a terminal, using the 'mount'
    command? If so it's probably just the entry for it that's missing
    in /etc/fstab

    Sure enough, that did it. I wonder why it wasn't detected when it was installed? Now that I know it is possible to mount it, what is the correct way, through the OpenSuse configuration tools and not the CLI, to add the disk to the fstab to ensure it is auto-mounted?

    Go into yast > system > partitioner. If it is detected here, you should be able to double click on it and set the mount point.

    Or simply, just edit the /etc/fstab manually.
