Adding new partition in /etc/fstab with UUID

If you want to add a new partition in /etc/fstab under file system you no longer have /dev/xxx but an UUID (Unique unit ID).

To find out the UUID of your partition just use the following command:
sudo vol_id -u <device>

for example, if you want to find the UUID of /dev/sda6, using the command:
sudo vol_id -u /dev/sda6

The rest is then as in the past.
