You need to add a line on your fstab file so your system can mount this partition at boot time.

To do so add something like :

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/drive ext4 defaults 0 0

Where /dev/sdb1 should be your drive, /mnt/drive is your mount point, ext4 your partition type, defaults should be your options and 0 0 are order to check.

More information here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fstab

You can also use UUID of your drive

First you find your UUID like this:

lsblk --output UUID,NAME

then your edit /etc/fstab and add

UUID=drive-UUID mountppoint type defautls order

as on the first example.

Before rebooting your computer test your mount with:

mount -a

Hope this help
