    OK. Deleting the folders did not help. They were re-created on boot-up. I have no idea how they magically returned.

    I can try, but I don't think the Data Storage name is the problem. The boot up error starts at Data\ and I have to skip the remaining mount process. I think somehow the magically returning Data\ folder is my problem. I will try uninstalling pysdm just to see if there is any tie in.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried editing /etc/fstab file? I am still waiting for the output of ls -l command.
    I can't suggest anything unless I check output of ls -l command?
    Code:
    cd /media/Data
    ls -l
    Post the output of df -h command too.

    Here is the ls -l

    /media \>-- cd Data\\
    /media/Data\ \>-- ls -l
    total 0

    I have made a variety of changes to fstab to no avail. I posted the contents earlier in the post.

    Post the contents of /etc/fstab file again. Did you create /media/Data_Storage folder and edit /etc/fstab file to replace Data\\ Storage with Data_Storage?

    It's displaying Data Storage mount point. Post the output of this
    Code:
    ls -l /media
    ls -l /media/Data\ Storage

    Not sure I edited fstab correctly. Data\\ is in /media, not in /dev. Not sure how to correct.

    I would suggest you follow following instructions one by one. Don't skip any.

    Step 1. Execute these commands in Terminal :
    Code:
    cd /media
    mkdir /media/Data_Storage
    Step 2. Edit /etc/fstab file. Replace /media/Data line with this
    Code:
    /dev/sdb2     /media/Data_Storage    ntfs-3g    defaults,umask=0   0    0
    Step 3. Reboot machine.

    Check /media/Data_Storage folder. Does everything look fine?
