stop linux mint from automounting partition

Post by kakarukeys » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:01 am

I noticed my Linux Mint 19 system occasionally automounts a particular partition after I unlock my screen. It automounts it under /media/root, so I could not access it without first unmounting and remounting it with sudo password.

Both /etc/fstab and disk utility do not have any special settings related to that partition. It is supposed to be not automounted after boot.
The automounting only happened to that particular partition, I am not sure what's so special about it.
It happened intermittently, I am not sure what triggers it.

I am at a loss on what to do. If you have any clue, please help me out.
