  1. Log into your instance via ssh.

  2. Format the volume: 

    Code Block
    $ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdc


    Info

    Attached volumes will typically be assigned device names in sequential order (i.e. /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, /dev/sde, etc.)


  3. List all disks from within the instance with: 

    Code Block
    $ sudo fdisk -l


    Info

    /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are the system volumes that make up the instance.


  4. Create a mount point for the volume: 

    Code Block
    $ sudo mkdir /mnt/<mount_point_name>


  5. Mount the volume device to the mount point: 

    Code Block
    $ sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/<mount_point_name>


  6. Permissions may need to be changed on the new volume, as they are initially set to root: 

    Code Block
    $ sudo chown ubuntu:ubuntu /mnt/<mount_point_name>


Additional information on how to use other volume types is available in our Advanced Guide under Volume Types.
