GNU/Linux Command – MOUNT

mount — Mount/Attach a File System to a File Tree.

Summary :

All files accessible in a Unix system are arranged in one big tree, the file hierarchy, rooted at /. These files can be spread out over several devices. The mount command serves to attach the file system found on some device to the big file tree.

Examples :
$ mount -- List all mounted FS (File System). $ mount -l -- List all mounted FSs with Labels. # mount -a -- Mount all entries in the /etc/fstab. # mount /mnt/cdrom -- Mount known device to cdrom dir. Mountwill find the CDROM device (/dev/hdX) from /etc/fstab. # mount /dev/hdd -- Mount device at the known place. Mountwill find the mount point (Ex. /mnt/cdrom) from /etc/fstab. # mount -t ext2 /dev/hda2 /tmp/dir1 -- Mount a Linux partitionat /tmp/dir1. # mount -t vfat -o rw,umask=0007 /dev/hda1 /mnt/C -- Mount FAT partition # mount -o rw /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy/ -t vfat -- Mount FAT formatfloppy in Read and write mode. # mount -t nfs /home/one -- Mount NFS partition, from a machine with particular IP, to /home/one dir. # mount /tmp/fdimage /mnt/test1 -t msdos -o loop=/dev/loop3,blocksize=1024-- Mount DOS Floppy image via loopback device. # mount /tmp/cdimg.iso /mnt/test1 -t iso9660 -o loop=/dev/loop3,blocksize=1024-- Mount a CD ISO Image via loopback device. # mount --bind /mnt/cdrom /mnt/test1 -- Mount the /mnt/cdrom in another location. So you can access in the FS in two places. # mount -t tmpfs none /mnt/test1 -o rw,size=1m -- Mount a tmpFS # mount -t tmpfs none /mnt/test1 -o remount,ro,size=1m-- Remount the same partition with different permission. # mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt -- Mount a NTFS (Default - Read Only) # umount /mnt/test1 -- Unmount the file system from /mnt/test1.
