How to link a drive as a folder in /home

I have several mounted drives. For example /dev/sdb1 and I would like to have this drive show up as "media" under /home as /home/media

How to accomplish this?

One method would be to symlink it.
Open terminal and run ln -s /media/$USER/(DRIVE)

Replace $USER with your user name for your home directory and (DRIVE) with the Drive Name.


Thanks will give this a try! And report back.

You can mount the drive, then navigate to it in Nautilus (FIles), then hit ctrl+L to toggle the location bar on. Then copy the path and paste it into terminal to make your life easier.
