Hardware :: Mounting Hard Drives With Partitions

Dec 27, 2009

I've been struggling with this one for a while - I have three SATA hard drives installed on my system:
/dev/sda - an 80 GB disk with three partitions, one NTFS for WinXP, one ext4 for Fedora 11 x86_64, and a boot partition
/dev/sdb - a 250 GB disk with one partition, ext4
/dev/sdc - a 250 GB disk with one partition, ntfs

I can mount any partition on /dev/sda without problems - everything works exactly as expected. Attempting to mount a partition from one of the other disks results in something like the following (this is for sdc1):

Code:
[User@machine ~]$ sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/shared
[sudo] password for User:
ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '/dev/sdc1': No such file or directory
ntfs-3g 2009.11.14 integrated FUSE 27 - Third Generation NTFS Driver
XATTRS are on, POSIX ACLS are off

Is there a way that I can get Dolphin to mount partitions? When I try to, it gives me an error on the bottom of the window saying I don't have permission to. I also can't mount partitions in other programs like Amarok, because of the same issue.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Ext4 Drives/partitions In 6.06?

Apr 5, 2010

I just recently found an iso for 6.06 and installed it on an old pc of mine that already had 8.04 and crunchbang on it. crunchbang is on an ext4 formatted partition.

When I setup 6.06, it asked me what i wanted to mount my drives as, so i told it to mount the ext4 system as hda1.

whenever 6.06 boots, it tries to mount hda1 but can't because it doesn't recognize ext4.

What I am asking is this: is there a deb or a package out there I can install to make 6.06 recognize ext4? if not, how can i make it so that 6.06 does not want to mount hda1?

I can get past the initial error message and into the desktop, so 6.06 does work.

Hardware :: Mounting Hard Drives

Mar 21, 2009

I know this is an easy task, especially using cPanel. However I want to do this without formatting the drive, since there is sensitive data already on the hard drives. So how would I mount a hard drive, but not format/lose any of the data already on it?I've looked and everything seems to lead me to believe that I'll lose data if I do it that way.

Fedora :: Auto Mounting Hard Drives?

Aug 10, 2009

I have a fresh installation of Fedora 11 and I am having a hard time figuring out how to automount my storage drives. Each time I login, I try to access my various storage drives and gnome makes me authenticate asroot before mounting it. FSTAB lists only logical volumes but not my storage drives. What can I do to make sure these automount when I login?

OpenSUSE :: Mounting Hard Drives As User?

Aug 4, 2010

OpenSuse 11.2 64bit When I select a hard drive in Dolphin file manager it asks for the root password. I would like to gain easier access to the drives. The Yast Partition Manager lists all of the drives and has a dialog box to change this i.e. user can mount the drive. Can we change this feature on the run, while the system is running ? The Fstab file is not listing all of the drives, so I cannot just edit the config here.

Ubuntu :: /var/log Files Are Huge; Mounting Large Hard Drives?

Oct 9, 2010

syslog, messages and kern.log are incredibly huge files that are taking up a lot of space on my hard drive. Is it safe to remove them and/or to reduce logging so it doesn't take such an enormous amount of hard disk memory? If so, how can I reduce the logging so it doesn't produce logs that are 10s of GB in size?Also, mounting a drive places it into the folder /media. Will it become problematic if the size of the mounted drive exceeds the amount of free space available on my Ubuntu partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drives And Partitions Work In General?

Apr 14, 2010

I've been through a lot of the posts already, but nothing seems to solve my problem. I have Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7 dual installed (Windows was installed first). Everything has been working fine until a few weeks ago when I accidentally left a USB drive plugged in when I restarted my computer from Windows.

Ever since then, whenever I have restarted my computer from Windows grub2 has failed (it does not fail when I restart from Ubuntu). I get a varying message like Grub loading. The symbol ' ' not found. Aborted. Press any key..where the part between the single quotes is usually different each time. When this happens I have to reinstall Grub2 from a live disk, which is becoming a bit of a pain.

I've been reading around, but I don't really have a great understanding yet of how hard drives and partitions work in general, and so I haven't been able to work out what the source of this problem is.

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Vista - No Hard Drives Or Partitions Are Shown

Feb 9, 2009

i'm tying to dual boot Vista64 (already installed) and Fedora 10 x86_64. I am running a Dell XPS 410 running 2 sata hard drives raid 0 (ICH8DH). I started the process by shrinking my C drive on disk0 leaving 64.45GB of unallocated space. Next I rebooted into Fedora install DVD and when i get to blue graphical install screen i get message asking if my drive is GPT and if it is it may be corrupted. I click NO, and it comes up with a message telling me i have to initialize my drive if i want to use it ( have to click NO twice) and if i do it i will lose all my data.

i can click no and keep proceding through the install until i get to the partition setup screen. No hard drives or partitions are shown. I've tried googling the problem and get bits of pieces of information scattered in different parts but nothing conclusive to my problem i think. As far as my background of knowledge goes, I'm new to the linux community but give me a thorough guide and i'll do fine (i hope). I've been using fedora on a separate laptop for 2 days now .

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Hard Drives - Creating "alternate" Boot Partitions And "alternate" Root File-systems On The New Drives

Aug 10, 2010

I have a Centos 5.5 system with 2* 250 gig sata physical drives, sda and sdb. Each drive has a linux raid boot partition and a Linux raid LVM partition. Both pairs of partitions are set up with raid 1 mirroring. I want to add more data capacity - and I propose to add a second pair of physical drives - this time 1.5 terabyte drives presumably sdc and sdd. I assume I can just plug in the new hardware - reboot the system and set up the new partitions, raid arrays and LVMs on the live system. My first question:

1) Is there any danger - that adding these drives to arbitrary sata ports on the motherboard will cause the re-enumeration of the "sdx" series in such a way that the system will get confused about where to find the existing raid components and/or the boot or root file-systems? If anyone can point me to a tutorial on how the enumeration of the "sdx" sequence works and how the system finds the raid arrays and root file-system at boot time

2) I intend to use the majority of the new raid array as an LVM "Data Volume" to isolate "data" from "system" files for backup and maintenance purposes. Is there any merit in creating "alternate" boot partitions and "alternate" root file-systems on the new drives so that the system can be backed up there periodically? The intent here is to boot from the newer partition in the event of a corruption or other failure of the current boot or root file-system. If this is a good idea - how would the system know where to find the root file-system if the original one gets corrupted. i.e. At boot time - how does the system know what root file-system to use and where to find it?

3) If I create new LVM /raid partitions on the new drives - should the new LVM be part of the same "volgroup" - or would it be better to make it a separate "volgroup"? What are the issues to consider in making that decision?

Fedora :: Prevent Mounting Of External Drives & CD / DVD Drives

Server :: 2 Separate External Hard Drives With ESata To Minimize An Electrical Failure To The Drives?

Mar 26, 2011

I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data

General :: Hard Drive Malfunctions When Other Hard Drives Are Connected?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a SATA drive that worked fine. Then I installed two more hard drives into my system. When these hard drives are installed, if I try to access the SATA drive in Linux, it will start lightly clicking and then the drive will become unavailable. If I power on the machine without the other two hard drives then it works fine. What could be causing this to happen? I don't think it's heat because the two hard drives are far away from the SATA drive.
