An Error Occured While Mounting

I am a newbie. I installed a new hdd (I think it's sdb1) and attempted to mount it using Storage Device Manager. I went off on a little adventure trying to get things mounted properly and changed some mount points I shouldn't have.

Now, when I reboot I get the error: "An error occured while mounting /media/File Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery". I think I may have created media/file as an incorrect mount point.

The following is now on my pc:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.


# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0

#Entry for /dev/sda6 :

/dev/sdb1 / ntfs defaults 0 0


"/etc/fstab" 16 lines, 827 characters

I have output from sudo bash which I ran when I first set up linux if that's any help.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
