File System table
refers to system configurations which are usually used on a Linux environment. Sometimes users may have problems with adding spaces
in mouth point path. This mainly happens because here various options are separated by a space
. To get rid of this problem, one has to type "0/040" instead of space
in the configurations. After that, adding spaces
in mouth point path should not be an issue.
Since the various options in / etc / fstab are separated by spaces, it is not possible to put spaces in the path of the mount point.
This limitation is easily bypassed by typing "\ 040" instead of a space in the configuration file.
/dev/sda1 /mnt/first\040disk ext3 options 0 0
This simply means that we mount /dev/sda1
on /mnt/first disk
