Fedora Hardware :: Safely Remove Drive Freezes System?

Aug 26, 2011

Until a recent software update, I encountered no problems when 'Safely Removing' my external hard drive.

After the following update:

Aug 23 14:36:03 Installed: kernel-devel-
Aug 23 14:36:13 Installed: kernel-

The system freezes when I try to safely remove the drive. What I see is the blue screen with the Fedora logo, the caps lock key lights up and the system is totally frozen. Following is the information on my external drive gleamed from the messages log file when the device was mounted:

Aug 26 07:53:03 localhost kernel: [ 496.855476] usb 1-1.2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7
Aug 26 07:53:04 localhost kernel: [ 496.942025] usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=1058, idProduct=0704

Fedora Hardware :: Crashes On "Safely Remove" Of External HDD?

Jun 14, 2011

I'm running Fedora 15 GNOME3 on a Compaq Presario C700 laptop.

I have an external Transcend HDD. I have three partitions on it.

When I insert it, it's automatically detected and the partitions mounted and works perfectly well but when I "Safely Remove" the disk, Fedora freezes and hangs. The mouse is immobilized and none of the keyboard actions work. I can't even enter the Virtual Terminal. The music playing in the background loops a short 1 second buffer or so.

However, if I eject all the partitions by clicking on the eject button in Nautilus and then "Safely Remove Drive", it does not crash.

Fedora :: Difference Between Unmount And Safely Remove

Mar 25, 2010

I have an external HDD which I use under Fedora. After finishing with my work, I unmount all the mounted partitions of the external HDD & then proceed to switch it off. The HDD partitions are unmounted but they are still visible(but not mounted) under computer. The HDD still seems to spin. But when I click on "Safely Remove Drive" they disappear from Computer & also the HDD stops spinning albeit the switch on HDD being powered on. So what should I use "Unmount" or "Safely Remove". What is the difference between the two?

Ubuntu :: Command Line Alternative For "Safely Remove Drive"

Aug 9, 2011

Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS

Is there a command line alternative to clicking on "Safely Remove Drive" in nautilus?

When I click on "Safely Remove Drive" in nautilus, the USB HDD attached (WD Elements) vanishes from the nautilus "places" list, the drive spins down, and the light on the drive dims to indicate that it is powered down.

I have tried the "umount" command as well as the "eject" command from the terminal, but they both only seem to unmount the drive, as it is still shown in the nautilus "places" list and the light on the drive stays bright.

Fedora Installation :: Safely Remove Unsupported Packages After FC13 Upgrade?

Jun 2, 2010

I managed to successfully upgrade FC11 to FC13. While doing the post upgrade steps, I made a HUGE mistake. After identifying the unsupported packages, I used "yum remove package1 package2" command to remove the obsoleted ones without realizing the yum was also removing many FC13 packages! Here are the cmd sequence used:

# package-cleanup --orphans
# yum remove compat-db45-4.5.20-5.fc10.i386 flash-plugin- gnome-spell-1.0.8-5.fc9.i386 ifd-egate-0.05-21.i586


I simply typed Yes and left unattended for a few minutes after yum prompted there were # of packages to be removed as I blindly believed it would do the job. After returning to the computer, I found many installed icons were disappearing, the wireless suddenly turned off etc. I killed the yum process right away but it was too late.

-Is there anything I could do to undo the yum remove process?

-How to safely remove supported packages?

General :: How To Add And Remove External FAT32 Usb Drive To RHEL Server?

Jan 8, 2010

I need to get a backup copy of a huge directory on one of our RHEL servers. Rather than hook the external USB drive up to my PC and manually copy it all across the network, can I just plug it in to one of my USB ports on the server and rsync it?I know how to do the rsync, I just don't know how to get the USB drive to show up when I do a df -h and how to properly remove it before unplugging it from the server. this is a live server, so I can't go playing around and possibly mess something up.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 'Safely Remove' USB HDD?

May 28, 2010

Is there a good/simple way to do this?OK - Under certain other OSs, the 'safely remove' option on usb devices will...1/ On usb pen drive with a power/activity led, switch it off (trivial nicety, but reassuring).2/ On usb HDDs, spin down the disk - seems more important.I don't know if it really is but 'pulling the plug' on a spinning HD makes me nervous!I have tried a number of linux distros recently and only ubuntu 10.04 with gnome seems to do the same. Most others (including openSUSE 11.2, kde 4.3.5 - which I have) only seem to unmount

Ubuntu Servers :: Safely Remove Mdadm RAID Superblock

Apr 5, 2011

I bought a disk to a friend that used it in a raid array, using the entire disk for the raid usage. To put that disk on service, i used dd-rescue to copy my old disk entirely, and managed to grow and setup a the partition table without losing any data. My last step was to create a RAID between my entire old disk, with a single partition and a partition of the same size on my new disk. I ran into some problems, but i manage to somehow fix it imperfectly, but now this setup is working properly. The problems (and imperfection) came from an issue it did not suspected : at some point, the original RAID superblock of the new disk, living in /dev/sda, resisted to dd-rescue, and so it is scanned by mdadm that tries, obviously unsuccessfully, to use it.

Partition layout :


Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes


this setup is working properly besides this raid5 declared on sda, so that is shows up here and there. Since it is using the same device name that my other, proper raid setup, i don't know how to deactivate it since mdadm uses the /dev/mdx name to identify arrays.

General :: End Of Support For Mint6 - Safely Remove The Partitions And Duplicate Operating Systems

Apr 14, 2010

The bad news comes that active support for Mint6 is set to end Apr. 30. The worse news is I don't know what to do about it. Complicating this is that I have about 5 drive partitions and duplicate Mint6 operating systems because of password problems and just partitioning the drive and rebooting the OS instead of trying to fix the issue. I hear good things about Mint8, but my 80 Gig drive is getting pretty thin on partitions. I know there must be a way to safely remove the partitions and duplicate operating systems. I just don't know how to do it.

Ubuntu :: "Safely Remove" Usb Hdd Via CLI?

Jun 1, 2011

I've got a couple external hard drives on my Ubuntu Server 10.04.2 box. One of them, a Seagate FreeAgent 2TB, powers down after it's unplugged from the USB port. The other one, a Seagate GoFlex Desk 3TB, stays spinning and doesn't power down if it's unplugged from the USB port. The 2TB drive is USB 2.0, while the 3TB drive is USB 3.0, but I don't know if that makes a difference.

I'm looking for a way to "safely remove" it so that the device powers down and the platters stop spinning before I unplug it. I did find a thread on the debian forums that was looking for the same thing, but I'm not quite sure how to tell which usb port that drive is hooked up to (since it's using an add-on USB 3.0 card). Not even sure what command would be used either.
