Sda was formatted but it was made for the one part only. Other part of sda is fully empty. Is possible to add a new partition without formatting all sda disk ? Will be saved first sda1 if to use the command fdsk sda for creation second sda2?

Welcome to ask.fedora. Yes, you can add another partition without blowing away what you have, but you're probably better off using GParted instead. This not only gives you a GUI, it also has a few safety features built in to help you avoid accidents. Even so, I'd suggest that you make a backup of any files you wouldn't want lost, Just In Case.

Add it to /etc/fstab

Remember, though, that /run is only in memory and won't survive a reboot. You'll have to create a nonvolatile mountpoint to make this work.

Thanks, it appeared! Now it is here /dev/sda3 on /run/media/seismo/5cddb1f3-c143-46c4-8731-0724d3b7b56c. How to add it in stable mounting in boot process? I mean without mount by hands after booting.
