Navigating to External Drives In Terminal (MAC)

Accessing external drives (volumes) on a MAC isn't the same as on a PC. This can be accomplished with a few easy commands.

1. Open a Terminal Windows (and type the commands below)

2. cd /

3. cd Volumes

4. ls

There you have it. All the drives attached on on your MAC. You can navigate to any by name.

Hint: Use single quotes around folders with spaces in the name
