Using spaces in fstab August 6, 2009

Posted by maxmil in : Debian , trackback

I frequently have to mount windows file systems that have spaces in their names.

If you put something like//path/to/windows/file system /local/mount/pointin ftstab it complains with

line XX in /etc/fstab is bad

The solution is to use the escape code \040 instead of the space//path/to/windows/file\040system /local/mount/point
