New Ubuntu install – creating directors on a 2nd HDD

New Ubuntu install – creating directors on a 2nd HDD:

I’m sure this is incredibly simple but I am new to Linux and it’s got me stumped (not even sure what to google). I have a 250GB SSD on which the Ubuntu OS is installed (server version, what to force myself to learn to work from the command line).

I also have a 1TB SATA drive installed that will be my media drive for a Plex server.

When I am at the command line, the actions I take (cd, mkdir) happen on the 250gb drive since that’s the system drive, right?

H/W path Device Class Description /0/1/0.0.0 /dev/sda disk 1TB ST1000DM010-2EP1 /0/2/0.0.0 /dev/sdb disk 240GB SanDisk SDSSDA24 

How do I get ‘into’ the 1TB drive? cd /dev/sda doesn’t work . I need to create a new directory on the 1TB drive.

If you’re bored this morning and want to answer my inevitble followup – is it possible to mount that 1tb drive as a remote drive on my windows 10 system (so I can easily drag and drop new media onto that drive over my home network). And YES I installed Samba when installing ubuntu.

Thanks!
