"PySDM begins with a listing of basic information. On the left
is a tree of all devices on the system. The rest of the window is
occupied by a tab that summarizes basic information about the
device: Its name, mount point, filesystem format, and the options
used to mount it. Except for the format, which would require a
partition editor like gparted to change, all this information is
"If you want to change the options used to mount the device, you
click the Assistant button to open a sub-dialog. This dialog
divides the options into five tabs. From the Mounting tab, you can
set such basic options as who can mount the device, whether it is
mounted at boot time, and whether it is mounted read-only. Under
Special Files, you can change permissions, while under Journaling,
you can turn off the journaling if you are using a filesystem that
supports it, which will give you a slight increase in speed at the
cost of making any recovering less certain. Under Performance, you
can tweak the speed of disk access by whether you toggle such
options as updating a file or a directory's time stamp each time
that you open it, while Miscellaneous provides a home for other
options, such as whether the filesystem requires a network to use.
As far as I can see, most of the available options for mounting a
command at boot time are listed."
