When I used the command listed above to mount large drives, it would immediately remove itself from Caja totally without mounting. I'm taking kraileth's advice beca...

Hi! I've just recently made the switch from Linux to BSD, to get away from all the systemd drama. I learned about GhostBSD after searching around for a bit, and am quite happy with it so far and it has definitely made my switch much easier. But I've still much to learn and have just a few more thing...
