How to mount 8TB HDD

Hi I have a rasbery pi I decided to try with yunohost the thing is that yunohost is installed on the ssd and the system starts through the ssd but because of the extra space I want the system to read my hdd everything is visible as it is stated here

namai@namai:~ $ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 110G 2.1G 104G 2% /
devtmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /dev
tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 759M 944K 758M 1% /run
tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock
/dev/sda1 255M 31M 225M 13% /boot
tmpfs 380M 0 380M 0% /run/user/29579
namai@namai:~ $ lsblk
sda 8:0 0 111.8G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 256M 0 part /boot
└─sda2 8:2 0 111.5G 0 part /
sdb 8:16 0 7.3T 0 disk

how to make this visible

sdb 8:16 0 7.3T 0 disk because it is currently running as underground

I tried to write yunohost to the same 8TB drive the problem is that after install the system uses only 2.5GB and its all space with OS everything else remains inaccessible. and everything else remains untouched

You have to mount the 8 TB drive.

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /some/path

But it looks like you don’t have this drive partitioned and formatted to ext4. Firstly, You have to partition and format the drive to ext4 with mkfs command (you will find help online or try Chat GPT) and then mount it with provided command above.
