OS module in Python provides functions for interacting with the operating system. OS comes under Python’s standard utility modules. This module provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality. os.path module is sub module of OS module in Python used for common path name manipulation.

os.path.ismount() method in Python is used to check whether the given path is a mount point or not.
A mount point is a point in a file system where different file system has been mounted.

Syntax: os.path.ismount(path)



Parameter:
path: A path-like object representing a file system path. A path-like object is either a string or bytes object representing a path.

Return Type: This method returns a Boolean value of class bool. This method returns True if the given path is a mount point, otherwise returns False.

On Linux system, the partitions and their mount points information can be displayed using the df command.

For example:

Code #1: Use of os.path.ismount() method to check if the given path is a mount point (On Unix)




# Python program to explain os.path.islink() method 
    
# importing os.path module 
import os.path
  
# Path 
path = "/run" 
  
# Check whether the 
# given path is a
# mount point or not
ismount = os.path.ismount(path)
  
  
# Path 
path = "/dev" 
  
# Check whether the 
# given path is a
# mount point or not
ismount = os.path.ismount(path)
print(ismount)
Output:
True
True

Code #2: Use of os.path.ismount() method to check if the given path is a mount point (On Windows)




# Python program to explain os.path.islink() method 
    
# importing os.path module 
import os.path
  
  
# On Windows, a drive letter root
# and a share UNC are always
# mount points Path 
path = "C:" 
  
# Check whether the 
# given path is a
# mount point or not
ismount = os.path.ismount(path)
print(ismount)
Output:
True
