I have installed Ubuntu system at an SS disk and I wish users to access partitions of the second (mechanical) disk as common depositories with full read/write/delete permissions for each file. And I wish that each user see such a partition (say /dev/sdb7) as a directory with a fixed name (say /home/the_user/F). I was advised (Is it possible to mount a partition as a common depository for users with the same relative path?) to mount the partition during boot and to symlink that mountpoint to somewhere in the user's home. However, in the manual for
I see an option
‘-d’ ‘-F’ ‘--directory’ Allow users with appropriate privileges to attempt to make hard links to directories. However, note that this will probably fail due to system restrictions, even for the super-user.
I am afraid of it. Please advise me an example of a proper link; and the corresponding group or bindfs commands to be used at user login or once forever by the root. Thanks!
