I'm unable to see mounts defined in /etc/fstab.d/$USER without running a mount --all command. I'd like to see them whenever I open the bash shell.

Here's what I'm doing:

echo c:/users/Anthony/downloads /home/Anthony/downloads ntfs binary,auto,user,posix=0 0 0 > /etc/fstab.d/Anthony

...but even if I log out and log back in, the mount doesn't show up unless I type mount --all.

Any ideas? Thanks!
