Everything I've been able to find on the topic suggests that mint will automatically detect the new drive But Not mount it.
Yet it isn't detecting it.
Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.
(I realise there is a parity of information here, but as I don't know what is relevant to my dilemma I didn't know what was needed to provide any help)
(also, the mint install itself is on a separate ssd, used purely for the OS and related applications, the two regular SATA drives are pure storage)
Thanks in advance
