1. Use SSH or the console to connect to the user instance. By default, user Instance should identify a new drive
named /dev/vdc. Using the tools lsblk or fdisk -l, the user can double-check.

# lsblk

Example of output:
vda 253:0 0 30G 0 disk
└─vda1 253:1 0 30G 0 part /
vdc 253:32 0 30G 0 disk

2. Make a mount point for the data in user Volume:

# mkdir Volume

3. Format the filesystem for the Volume:

# mkfs.et4 /dev/vdc

Example of output:
mke2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
Filesystem label=
OS type: Linux
Block size=4096 (log=2)
Fragment size=4096 (log=2)
Stride=0 blocks, Stripe width=0 blocks
1966080 inodes, 7864320 blocks
393216 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
First data block=0
Maximum filesystem blocks=2155872256
240 block groups
32768 blocks per group, 32768 fragments per group
8192 inodes per group
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
32768, 98304, 163840, 229376, 294912, 819200, 884736, 1605632, 2654208,

Allocating group tables: done
Writing inode tables: done
Creating journal (32768 blocks): done
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done

4. Mount the Volume with the above mount point:

# mount /dev/vdc /Volume

5. The volume will be mounted automatically.

# df -h

Example of output:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
devtmpfs 486M 0 486M 0% /dev
tmpfs 496M 0 496M 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 496M 13M 483M 3% /run
tmpfs 496M 0 496M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/vda1 30G 1.7G 29G 6% /
tmpfs 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user/0
/dev/vdb 30G 45M 28G 1% /GBCloud_Volume
/dev/vdc 30G 45M 28G 1% /Volume
