Space in Partition Name

Question

I have a partition called ‘OLD DISK’. How do I specify it in the FSTAB file with the space ? If I put quotation marks, it returns an error.

Answer

You have to ‘escape’ the space with 40. For example, your FSTAB entry will be something like

/dev/sdb3   /media/OLD40DISK  auto  defaults  0
