I have 2 1TB USB drives with a dozen or more partitions, only one of

solution to mounted clutter.

However I have several USB drives (64GB - 250GB) with multiple
partitions. How do I mount all partitions of a specific device
(e.g. /dev/sdc)?


Assuming there are entries in fstab for each partition,

There are not. I have a varying number of devices. Each device is normally associated with a specific function (e.g. sneaker-net) or personal project. A specific physical device may be reformatted and assigned a new purpose.

you could use a (bash) for loop, like:

for i in  /dev/sd<device_letter>*;  do  mount $i; done
