Types of mount points


What are the types of mount points available in Linux machine and how to find
what type of mount point is configured in my linux machine?

Is mount point otherwise called as file system or do they have different meaning ?

Hi Maddy,

A mount point other than the "root or / filesystem" is generally a "directory" and a file system is generally a "partition or volume" you can find a description here.

Use the "mount" command to list out your currently mounted filesystems.

Use "man mount" to find out what types of mounting are supported by your particular operating system version.
