Drive is not mounting

I think I found out why I can not see a directory.

I do not think dev/sda2 is being mounted.

I saw in gparted that it has no mountpoint.

Is that required?

The line before the swapfile is my attempt at fixing that.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation

/etc/fstab has 6 fields, you are missing the last field (a zero).

lsblk -f will list all drives and their filesystem.

sudo mount -a should mount all drives found in /etc/fstab

df will show the mounted drives
