I have 2 hard drives both are 278.9GB in a mirror raid 1. Why does 2 partitions show up? Are they referring to each physical hard drive? I want to believe that this is the same partition and not two different physical hard drives since both are in the same 'start' and 'end' range. Is that correct?
I had a Linux server with Wheezy, I have 2 internal drive, one for linux OS, the other our Video On Demand drive that must be accessible to Windows and online. (That's why I chose NTFS, with our large video files, FAT will not work, and EXT isn't compatible with windows sharing, and I haven't gotten FTP to work right .
So I upgraded to Jessie today, and everything went smoothly until I tried to access my NTFS drive. (Named WowzaStorage)
I used FSTAB to auto-mount the drive (/dev/sdb1) to /media/ntfs/ on boot. All of this worked swimmingly on Wheezy, but since the update, something got mucked up and I cannot figure it out.
When accessing the mounted NTFS folder in /media/ (if it even shows up) gives me a 'Cannot be found' 'Input/Output error'
When in gParted to examine the drive, I can select it and view all the correct info, but I keep getting "error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sdb1/ --invalid argument"
Now first I thought maybe the NTFS driver was faulty and I removed 'ntfs-3g' and reinstalled it.
Now when I am in Terminal, after i umount and mount sdb1, I can CD to the drive but not the folders on it... Also using the File Browser, I get errors, and missing folders.
I get "Unhandled error message: Error when getting information for file '/media/ntfs': Input/output error"
I`m unable to mount my second hard drive I use to store my music and pics and wonder if it is to do with the error "failed to initialise HAL!" which I get every time I start Debian Lenny (AMD64 architecture). I have had this since doing an install (fresh) a few hours ago.
The drive is an ntfs one but when I click its icon in the computer section it says it cannot mount it and gparted says it cannot read the file system.If so how would I get the error box to stop appearing and how do I mount the ntfs drive?
I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
When I plug in my external USB Hard drive which is formatted as a single NTFS partition, it is recognized and mounted automatically, a nautilus window pops open. Unfortunately it is not writable. The reason is: the partition is mounted "ntfs" (which lacks write support) instead of "ntfs-3g". This is the output of mount after plugging in the drive:
$ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077)
I want this partition to be writable by just plugging it in.
The partition should not have any errors because a) I fsck'ed it windows and b) mounting it manually works:
$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk_/ $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk_ type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ devkit-disks --mount-fstype ntfs-3g --mount /dev/sdc1 Mounted /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Disks/devices/sdc1 at /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ gnome-mount -nbtd /dev/sdc1 $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
How can I get ntfs drives to be mounted as writable by default, preferrably without having to modify fstab?
Long time Slack user, thought I would try to update my old laptop (Toshiba Satellite with AMD K6-2 333 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 40 GB hard drive) from 10.2 to 13.37 in celebration of the newest version :-)
By update, I mean a complete wipe and reinstall, just to be clear.
So 10.2 runs well, everything looks shiny (XFCE of course) but when I try to install 13.37 I run into trouble. I figured out to boot with huge.s instead of hugesmp.s, but when I try to run 'setup' I get an error that says I have no partitions. mkay, I try fdisk (or cfdisk), but I get literally NO response - no error, no nothing but a return to the command promt. It is exactly as if fdisk does not recognize there is a hard drive there at all.
I boot back into 10.2,check the BIOS, everything looks fine, I have a drive mounted at /dev/hda1, swap at /dev/hda3. Are there some additional parameters I should be booting with? Does it matter that the hard drive is ATA?
I am new to debian and recently I have been working with a debian server. I have been asked to find out how to create a script that you can run or can be run by another program to format and mount a new hard disk?
My problem is that my debian in hard drive 1 wont load, gives me a fatal error.
This is my computer: Hard drive 1 (1TB): broken debian 333gb, windows7 666GB (approximately) Hard drive 2 (250GB): debian (working fine, im using it now).
Details: I tried to install some webcam software thing and I think somehow i deleted some system files... ...So now when I start my computer, grub loads and i choose Debian on hard drive 1,i click it but when it goes through the list of things, it says
FATAL ERROR /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko: No such file or directory
And it just goes to a blank screen with a blinking cursor.
Now that's not all. I did something else wrong... I ran Gparted from a usb stick to create an extra partition on hard drive 1 because i was trying to install another linux on it or something so I can access my computer.
But, when I tried to shrink it and create an extra partition on the disk of about 150gb, it was taking so long and i read that it may take about 40 hours, so i turned it off after a few hours. So, I may have created more problems than my original problem.... I can still boot into Windows 7 though.
So now i have: Hard drive 1 (1TB): broken debian about 120gb, windows7 666gb (approximately), free partition Hard drive 2 (250GB): debian (working fine, im using it now).
Also, of interest: When I look at the folders of the messed up debian, there is nothing in the /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel folder. Empty.
So basically. my problem is that I get the fatal error, and then maybe i create some extra problem by stopping the partitioning when it wasnt done. so please help me try to fix the fatal error first
I am making backups and I need to make a cron job that mounts a 2nd local hard drive.
It is not listed in my fstab file and I mount it manually in nautilus (having to type a password). It is designated as /dev/sdb1 and /media/repo when it is mounted. Can I get cron to mount it and then add the password or do I have to add it to fstab?
I am running Debian 3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 on hyper-v, my / volume ran out of space and is sitting at 100%, I have extended the disk size on hyper-v, however when I go to Fdisk I see duplicates of each disk.
I have total of 2 vhds on the vm, so I see 4 disks under fdisk. Here is the output of fdisk
I have never seen this one before (see below) - note how /dev/sda1 is mounted from the first disk listed by fdisk, but /dev/sda2 comes from the second disk; what is going on here? This is what I did: I installed the latest debian "Testing", which went well - it found the disks in the order show by fdisk -l here. When it booted up after installation, it failed because it couldn't find /, which I repaired by editing the grub menu (I told it to start from the other disk), and it came up. But now I had to mount /u01 by hand from /dev/sda1; strange. I suppose I could just go and change the physical disks around, but I'd like to understand this. Any ideas?
I just installed Squeeze on a 4 disk system, each disk set up identically with 4 partitions, with the last partition of each disk used for a raid 5 array. I used the squeeze installer, and chose the 'manual' partition option for this setup.
After installation, fdisk reports the ending cylinder number of each of the 4 disks as one more than the total number of cylinders for the disk. I've never seen this before. In the past when I've used fdisk to manually partition disks, the final cylinder number was always equal to the total number of cylinders.
The disk has 60801 cylinders, and the 'End" cylinder number for /dev/sdd4 is reported as 60802. I would have expected it to be 60801. Is this a bug or problem? It's working OK, but I don't know if it will cause instability in the future.
I just tried mounting my Iomega 1tb hard external hard drive, but it doesn't seem to work. The drive doesn't show up in nautilus. When I look at it with parted it shows as a ms-dos filesystem. If I plug it into my imac, it shows doesn't mount either, but in the driveutility it shows up as a fat32.Windows 7 doesn't seem to helpfull as it just says that the drive needs to be formatted.Is there any way to recover my files before I format, or better yet solve this problem without formatting?
I am trying to mount a 2nd NTFS storage disk in my new installation on Ubuntu 10.10, I can see it in the disk manager, but cannot access the files, I tried following the steps on this on another thread and i got the following error:
I am attempting to put vista onto my laptop from a Full install of Ubuntu 10.10, but when I boot from my vista CD and attempt the instalation it says I have to have my drive formated to NTFS, I have tried to google how to get this done.ied to go to ystem>Administration>Disk Utility and then edit the type of the partition but there are like 20 options and none of which are just NTFS. what should I do?
(Using ubuntu 9.04) I really don't want to trash my system! I have an external usb hard drive I want to automount on bootup / startup. Not 100% sure of the best / safest way: here is some info on my drives
ONCE MOUNTED THROUGH FILE MANAGER AND RUNNING DF AGAIN HERE IS THE DRIVE
Here is my fstab file
So the drive is a NTFS drive and it's /dev/sdb1 and label is /media/Mybook
I recently updated to Kernel 184.108.40.206 available from the: Mainline. The reason I have done this is because it corrects an error that prevents my web-cam from functioning (Microsoft VX-3000). So, with this kernel I have a functioning web-cam *but* I have noticed now that my USB Hard Drive intermittently now unmounts. I am unable to remount the device without rebooting Ubuntu. The drive was mounting dirty but installing NTFSProgs and running NTFSfix was the solution for that. I have disabled power management completely on my machine by editing /etc/default/acpi-support and changing SUSPEND_METHODS to "none" and both ACPI_SLEEP and ACPI_HIBERNATE to false. This seems to have made the USB hard drive take longer before it unmounts but it does still unmount. Also as a GRUB2 boot option I have tried acpi=off but this also disabled my usb keyboard and mouse and my BIOS isn't flexible enough to work around that so I cannot use that option. With these things in mind are there any other avenues I could pursue and things I could try?
Edit: It may not be "unmounting" it just disappears. Also, I could try to whitelist the USB controller in /etc/default/acpi-support if I knew how to find out what it was called but I do not know how to do that.. Yet !
Edit2: I moved the physical plug to another slot where it connects on the computer. If this disconnects again I'll swap out the cable. If it disconnects again.. I'll go buy a huge 1TB internal sATA and call it a day. ~
Some time ago I reformatted my hard drive to just run Ubuntu. Now I need to install Windows XP but when I put in the install disk it says it can't find a hard drive. I'm guessing this is because the hard drive is formatted to a Linux-specific ext4/extended/linux-swap set-up. The ext4 partition is 71GB and only uses 13GB. I have 57GB free. I can see all this in Gparted but how do I now split that ext4 up and free some space for ntfs partition for Windows? Indeed is this what I should be doing? Obviously I can't unmount the ext4 bit whilst in Ubuntu.
Ultimately I want to do a complete reformat of the hard disk and just install Windows XP for the time being (I'm handing the laptop in for a hardware service).
I've been searching for a way to do this with no luck. I've got a 1TB external hard drive I used to share over the network from my Windows desktop -- which is now a Ubuntu desktop.I've tried setting it up as a samba share, and the closest I've gotten is mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory. I've tried the suggestions (editing /etc/security/limits.conf), and that removed the warning I got from testparms but didn't fix the mounting on my mythtv box.
I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it 2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it 3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.
It's been about three days since I've made Ubuntu my OS and I'm quite surprised to see, when I tried it first via wubi, that it actually reads NTFS partitions.It made backing up easy for me though now is it still alright that I still keep them NTFS or should I now start converting them to ext4? Except for my external hard drive.and what's the difference with ext3 and ext4? I was shown these options when I tried formatting my hard drive.
My other hard drive has two partitions which was done when I installed windows a few years back..If I would to reformat should I combine these partitions into one and make new partitions via that?
I've got a SATA drive (formatted as NTFS) I share between an XP machine and an Ubuntu machine. From Ubuntu, I never write to the drive... I only write to it from the XP box. So, I am wondering about a couple of things:
- If I do write to it from the Ubuntu machine, will that create any problems. By that I mean, if I add, rename, edit files from the Ubuntu machine, will that negatively affect anything?
- If, from the Ubuntu machine, I set perms on the files and folders on the drive, how will that affect things when I plug it back into the XP machine?
