Fedora Installation :: Cannot Open 1TB Backup Drive

Nov 19, 2009

I've got sidux installed onto a 150GB sata drive & a 1TB sata drive for music/emails etc all formatted as ext3. When I boot into the KDE Fedora 12 (live CD) I find that I can't access that 1TB drive. No point installing Fedora 12, if I've lost the best part of a TB.

General :: Mount Point For Backup Drive - Partition To Backup The Important Files On My Main HDD

May 21, 2011

I'm just setting up a partition on a seperate HDD in my system. I plan to use the partition to backup the important files on my main HDD (to guard against HD crash).

The question I have is about where would be the typical location to auto mount this partition? Which would it be normal to go for:

1. /backup/
2. /media/backup/
3. /mnt/backup/
4. /home/chris/backup/

Red Hat / Fedora :: Bootable Backup On Existing Drive Holding Win 7

Feb 10, 2010

I have Fedora 12 installed on an external harddrive (USB) and have it configured the way I want. Inside my laptop I'm working on I have a Win 7 installation. My plan is to slowly migrate to Fedora and only use Win 7 when needed, so far so good..

I shrinked the partition on the internal drive holding using Win 7's built in tools and would like to clone my USB installation to the new partition I can now create, I work a lot with Macs in my line of work and there I always use Carbon Copy Cloner to make bootable backups, works like a charm..

As far as I know CCC uses rsync which is available for Linux as well so I guess I could use that? I plan on editting the Win7 bootloader later on to make it possible to boot from the new Fedora partition.

How would I go about it? The internal drive is GUID (or is it GPT?) formatted and loosing the Win 7 installation isn't an option of course.. All I could find were commandlines to backup certain folders or entire drives but I only want to backup my partition onto a different partition..

Ubuntu Installation :: Accessing The L-TO-4 SAS External Tape Drive And Backup Data On It?

Feb 28, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04, and i recently purchased an tandberg LTO-4 SAS tape drive. I want to access it and backup data on it. Do I simply just connect plug it into the server,and I should be able to backup/transfer data to the tape drive? Or are there intermediate steps before I can do that. Here are some results from commands that I have typed:


ls /dev/tape/


ls -lt /dev/tape/by-id/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2011-02-25 14:54 scsi-3500110a00145553e -> ../../st0

Fedora :: Backup Drive Listed Twice (Make Auto Set Permissions)

Dec 14, 2009

I have an issue that my BACKUP drive is listed twice. (internal FAT) I am running F12 32b. I have it listed in FSTAB so it will automount & set the permissions. I did this in the earlier versions I upgraded from. I would like to either get rid of the other entry or, if easier, make it auto & set permissions but I don't know where it is.

Fedora :: Finding A Backup Failing Laptop To Standalone Drive?

Feb 11, 2010

I am running Live 12 on my CD rom drive of my dying laptop. I have a major Windows registry error on that system and am working to recover my files. I have successfully moved a couple of folders from the laptop to my Seagate Free Agent Drive as a test.What I would like to know is, is there a way to copy my files and folders without literally dragging and dropping each one? We're talking 140 G of folders....sigh.

Fedora :: Cron Backup Permission Denied On External Drive?

Aug 28, 2010

I have a cron backup scheme in which I rsync, then tar, then copy files on my internal hard drives to an external (USB) drive. When it works, it works. But I often get a "Permission Denied" message for all of these tasks. how the external drive is auto-mounted so I edited the etc/fstab so that the owner of the cron job is also the owner of the external drive (I think. Unfortunately, I'm not at that machine right now (it's at work), I can't give the exact fstab line (I will post it as an update to this thread next time I am at the machine).) BUT, I still get times when the cron backup runs fine and other times I get the Permission Denied. This is a shared machine that is dual-booted, so what I *think* is going on is that when the machine is rebooted to Fedora, but nobody logs in, I get a Permission Denied for the cron backup. It seems like on days when someone has logged in as the main user and left without logging out that the cron backup runs fine.

Fedora :: Use Rsync To Backup My Music Collection - Add Files To The Destination Drive?

Mar 6, 2010

I'm currently learning to use rsync to backup my music collection. I have a Firefox tab open to the rsync manual page(s) and have been reading man rsync and running experimental rsync operations.I've been doing this for the last 3-4 hours. I've used rsync for this purpose in the past with disastrous results. What was and is once again (due to a month and a half of file pruning) a 9000 file music collection had mysteriously grown to over 25,000 music files and 80GB of data! This was likely due to the fact that I didn't really know what I was doing with rsync and had never spent too much time learning about all the parameters, what their functions are and how they may relate to my goal.Here are the particulars:

* Source drive is a 500GB disk, /media/sata500/music/.

* Destination drive is a 250GB USB disk, /media/FreeAgent/music, connected to the same computer that houses the 500GB disk.

* I want to copy or backup files from /media/sata500/music to /media/FreeAgent/music.

* I do not want to create ANY duplicates of files that exist.

* I only want to add files to the destination drive if they are new on the source drive, like if I rip a CD and add the contents to the source. I want them copied over next time I run rsync.

Here's the rsync command in it's most recently used form, and probably very immature at this point.


rsync -t -r -vv --stats -i --log-file=/home/glenn/rsync.log /media/sata500/music/* /media/FreeAgent/music/

This appears to have copied all files and folders and I'm satisfied that my goal has been met with some success. To convince myself of this I ran the command and then once it was complete I added 2 new songs putting them in their respective folders on the source drive and ran the same command again. The resulting output was


Two files transferred. Exactly what I want.Both folders now house 20,931 files and use 40.6GB. Identical as far as I can tell.What I'm concerned about are time stamps and play count data, etc. Anything that changes the original file. I don't want this data to cause a file to be transferred as I'm afraid that the new file will be created along side the old file of the same name thereby starting this whole music collection expansion thing all over again. I've invested a lot of time and effort to get it pruned down to where there are virtually no duplicates and albums are correct in that they contain the proper songs in the proper order.

Debian Installation :: Can't Open CDROM Drive While Installing VM 7.6

Oct 9, 2014

VirtualBox 4.3.14
Windows 7
Debian 7.6

I'm trying to create a new VM with Debian 7.6. I downloaded the 3 install iso discs and tried to install. When I begin the installation it seems to take control of the CDROM and I am no longer able to eject it by either pressing the eject button or trying to eject through Windows. The installation goes fine until it asks if I have any other discs to install (which I do ... I have 2 more). At this point I say "Yes" but I cannot get the CDROM to open up at all since it doesn't automatically eject for another disc and as I mentioned before ... I can't do it manually or in Windows.

- I cannot do an installation over the internet because this is a government computer which is requires to be hooked to a government network. There are certain certificates required to access the network which are not available to my newly made (or in the process of making) Linux system but rather only to my host Windows system.
- I cannot use a newer version of VirtualBox because that opens up a whole new set of issues dealing with WinVerifyTrust getting CERT_E_REVOCATION_FAILURE most likely due to our symantec security software.

So my Storage Settings in VirtualBox are as follows for my CDROM drive:
- Controller: IDE Controller
- Type: PIIX4
- "Use Host I/O Cache" is checked
- Host Drive D:
- CD/DVD Drive: IDE Secondary Master
- "Passthrough" is checked

I cannot install the Debian 7.6 OS because I cannot eject each disc and put in the next disc. The only way I can eject the disc is if I reboot my entire system (host windows system) which obviously leaves me at an unfinished point in my install and therefore I have to restart the install and end up right where I was 30 minutes earlier.

Fedora :: Disable Auto Open Nautilus When USB Drive Plugged?

In Fedora 15, when I plug a USB drive, Nautilus will automatically open and show whats inside of it. I'm working in a project where I have to plug and unplug USB drives many times, and Nautilus opening every time is really annoying. I tried to use gconf-edit and set the keys apps>nautilus>preferences>media_automount and media_automount_open to false, but it didn't work.

General :: Open Source File Replication - Backup ?

Jun 5, 2010

I am IT Manager. Currently I am responsible for a mostly IBM shop, running a mix of AIX, OS/400. VMware, and Windows.

My P-series running AIX and Oracle and my AS/400 both back up to tape drives daily.
But my VMware system is not being backed up, the virtual machines are, but my tape drive just broke down.

I just ordered a server grade machine with an i5 CPU, running 3 2TB SATA drives in RAID5, this is going to be my new backup server.

I am hoping I can put Linux on it, and some sort of open source file replications, real time backup software that will back up my Windows servers, and my Windows desktops in real time.... any sort of animal exist?

General :: Which FS For 1TB Usb Backup Drive?

Aug 20, 2010

I just got a 1TB external usb hard drive to backup my comedy shows. On my smaller usb 'pen' drives, I set the file system to ext2 (occasional reads/writes) , but should I do the same for this bigger and more frequently acessed drive? (daily read/ocassional writes), should I go with EXT3 for the journaling?

Also, regarding security, I was thinking about making the drive writable only by root, so that when I mount the drive as a normal user, which will be for a few hours daily, if someone does get onto my system they couldnt write to the drive from my user account. That should just be a simple case of setting the device to 755 (and owner=root) should it not?

Ubuntu Servers :: Open Source Solution To Backup Windows Environment

Feb 17, 2010

I am mainly a Windows admin, but I do *NIX administration from time to time, for now I need to use an open source solution for backup windows environment mainly, I spent last days playing with bacula and backupPC, and I then chose backupPC, I built a solution with it seems working not bad, but before i go on deeper, I thought asking geeks here better, my main experience with back was with Vertias/Symantec Backup Exec, what do you recommend as most similar backup solution in Ubuntu offer a close level (I don't backup to tapes I back to hard disks), also a gui is preferred, while backupPC do a nice work and i handled its client config file (machine_name.pl), but I still do mistakes sometimes and troubleshooting is annoying, I have to backup files from users machines some of these files are running (like PST files), and I could need to backup a database or something from time to time. so whats your opinion all?

Ubuntu :: Flash Drive Changes Name On Backup?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm running Xubuntu 9.10 on an older machine. I've got a flash drive (called "TF_FLASH") plugged into a USB hub. I am using simplebackup to backup my documents (I'm writing my thesis and that is really the only important thing on this computer).

The problem I am having is this: simplebackup will run and backup my files once or twice (I have it set up to go overnight). After that, though, the name of the flash drive changes (from "TF_FLASH" to "TF_FLASH_" - note the extra underscore at the end). So, simplebackup cannot find the drive. If I go into the settings of simplebackup and change the backup destination to "TF_FLASH_" it will work once or twice, but the drive will change to "TF_FLASH__" - again an additional underscore.

I don't know if the name change is being caused by Xubuntu, simplebackup, or some other method. The USB hub is a cheap one, but I don't think that's the problem (my mouse is plugged in and continues to function, etc.).
