I think it works, Mint 18 xfce. Have installed clonezilla from the mint package manager, called it [sudo clonezilla] and it opened.

Mounting a network folder in your filesystem on Linux Mint

Mounting a network folder in your filesystem

Consider the example of mount external network storage (NAS) in my filesystem as if it were a hard drive.

I have network file storage on a separate disk. I wanted to mount the drive in a separate folder in your home directory.

My actions are as follows.
1. First I find out the IP address for the network name wdmycloudex2

net lookup wdmycloudex2

2. Then open fstab and write automount at boot.

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

for Mate edition

sudo pluma /etc/fstab

In the opened editor will contain a new line following:

//192.168.180.83/public /home/mintguide/MyCloud cifs username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD,noperm,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,iocharset=utf8,_netdev 0 0

,where

//192.168.180.83/public - the remote folder

/home/mintguide/MyCloud - Local folder (mount pointThe path must be without spaces

username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD - Enter if the access to network storage limited

3. That's it. After reboot you will find in a local folder to a network folder. Also I recommend to add a Bookmark for easy navigation.

    Many thanks. I changed my router and of course the IP address of my NAS changed. You can save the name and IP address in /etc/hosts. Makes it a bit easier.
