The command is

Code: Select all

mount -t type device dir

eg. If I had an ext4 partition /dev/sda2, and I wanted to mount it to /media/sda2 for access purposes, I'd run something like

Code: Select all

sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda2 /media/sda2

If you want an in-depth explanation, open a terminal and run

Code: Select all

mount -h


Code: Select all

man 8 mount
