A disk or network drive is ``mounted'' into the file system at a mount point, which looks like a directory, e.g. /mnt/cdrom.
a directory in a file system that corresponds to the root directory of some other file system
a directory in a first filesystem on one device (such as your hard disk) but which contains a second filesystem, perhaps on another device (such as a floppy disk)
a directory in which a filesystem is mounted
a directory, made like any other directory using the mkdir command
a directory or file at which a new file system, directory, or file is made accessible
a directory that is used as a reference into the other filesystem
a directory to which the mounted file system is attached
a directory where additional file systems can be grafted onto the root file system
a directory which a device or partition is attached to
an empty directory that becomes the access point for the NetWare file system
an empty directory upon which another disk partition is (or will be) mounted
The directory on your workstation from which you access information that is stored on a local or remote disk resource.
A special type of directory that connects a location in the AFS filespace with a volume. A mount point looks like a standard directory; listing the directory shows the contents of the volume. Each mount point corresponds to a single volume.
a special type of directory that connects a location in the AFS file space with a volume. A mount point looks like a standard Unix directory. Listing the directory (ls) shows the contents of the volume.
An empty directory in a filesystem where another filesystem is to be "mounted", or grafted on.
(n.) A workstation directory to which you mount file system that exists on a remote machine.
is the directory where a partition or another device is attached to the GNU/Linux filesystem. For example, your CD-ROM is mounted in the /mnt/cdrom directory, from where you can explore the contents of any mounted CDs.
A directory in a mounted file system that serves as an access point for another file system. multitasking- The ability to execute more than one process or task at a time. multiuser- The ability of a system to support multiple simultaneous users.
The directory under which a filesystem is accessible after being mounted.
The mount command takes a filesystem and maps it to an existing directory in the file tree, called the mount point. The mount point is typically empty directories, though not necessarily so; if a directory serving as a mount point contains anything, the contents will be inaccessible while the new filesystem is mounted there.
Shore's analog of an AFS mount point: a persistent, cross-volume, link to the root directory of a volume.
A special type of directory that associates a location in the AFS file space with a volume. It acts like a standard UNIX directory in that users can change directory to it and list its contents with the UNIX cd and ls commands.
A directory on your system that is chosen to be the base directory of a particular device's filesystem.
The directory through which the mounted filesystem is accessed.
A mount point is a directory on a volume that an application can use to "mount" (set up for use) a different volume. Mount points overcome the limitation on drive letters and allow more logical organization of files and folders.
A directory on an NFS client that is associated with a remote file system. The directory must exist before NFS can use it as a mount point.
