As far as I can see, any filesystem plugged in after Ubuntu has booted
will be auto-mounted. Filesystems that are present on boot need to be
specifically referenced in fstab. I have the line: /dev/sdb1
/media/storage auto defaults 0 0
in fstab. This mounts whatever drive is in my trayless caddy at boot.
Usually a 1 TB storage drive, but sometimes a drive with Windows on it.
One is formatted ext4 and the other ntfs. It mounts either.
