Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded And Lost Data Drives

Jul 5, 2010

-I upgraded my Ubuntu install and the system boots except it ignores my two data drives. I get a prompt to continue waiting, skip or manually recover. If I skip I boot into Ubuntu. The fstab entries for the data drives are:


I booted with a knoppix cd and both drives are found and contain data. What steps can I take to remount these drives and recover the data?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 9.10 To 10.04 And Lost These Feature(s)?

May 31, 2010

I recently upgraded to 10.04 Lucid a while ago. I don't know if anyone else needs this feature but I use it a lot.


In previous releases, one of my favorites about RhythmBox was the fact that if you need to control things such as volume or check presently playing track, you can do so just by a mouse-over action and a scroll mouse over the Top-panel tray icon. It's all gone. Need to say the new click-on is good too but it's without the mouse scroll or Mouse-Over INFO

How can I re-enable it please? Why should I click on RhythmBox player each time just to control volume


Since upgrading to 10.04, only external mics work

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded Kernel - Lost Previous Kernels?

Aug 5, 2011

I upgraded to 2.6.35-30.56 last night and now my system's a little flaky. Everything seems to be running ever-so-slightly slower and fullscreen flash is now choppy. The weird thing is the Grub menu upon bootup only shows the latest kernel, but not the previous kernels. Doing an "ls" of the /boot folder only shows this newest kernel. I'd like to revert back to the previous kernel but don't know how.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Mount Data Drives

Jan 9, 2011

I installed 10.10 on my workstation but now my system refuses to mount two existing two data drives that were already there... sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/data-b gives me: mount: unknown filesystem type 'isw_raid_member'

I didn't change any BIOS settings... My BIOS is not configured for RAID at all, that setting reads AHCI, which should be okay for my kernel (using the stock 2.6.35-24).

I tried to force mount one of the drives with sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc /mnt/data-b

but this gives me an even stranger message:
"/dev/sdc already mounted or /mnt/data-b busy (neither of them are true...)

It's mainly the "isw_raid_member" thing that troubles me... I didn't and don't have a RAID system at all..

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting The 10.10 Without Erasing The Data In Other NTFS Drives?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm using windows 7 now and I want to install ubuntu as the main OS to the current C:drive(which has installed windows currently) but with keeping the data in other ntfs drivers(D:, E:, F: ) on my hard disk. I can't take backups of all data in other drivers and if that data erased with ubuntu installation I will face a very big problem in future. So how to install ubuntu 10.10 only for a one drive(c: drive) without erasing the data on other ntfs drivers? and I uses nvidia 8 series graphic card and are there any special things to follow to install it's official linux drivers(.run) or is it enough to use default drivers on ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Retieving Lost Partition And Data?

May 12, 2010

I was a regular Windows user and have installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 2 days back. Not really sure what was my mistake during installation but that had erased all my data. I lost windows completely and lost all my data in all 4 drives including drives itself.I searched in internet and forums as how could I recover my data, and got solution to use test disk. Testdisk worked perfectly, I recovered my 4 drives and retrieved data for 2 of my drives. But I still cann't retrive my important data from other drives.I guess data still exists in hard disk. (no free space , and no data)I know there could be several threads which had solved this kind of problem.

Ubuntu :: Lost Data During Dual Boot Installation With Backtrack + 10.04 Netbook?

Dec 28, 2010

Generally I am used to installations of dual boot on different partitions(the traditional method) any windows OS with any ubuntu OS.I tried that with backtrack 4 and Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition! I had previously installed ubuntu 10.04 and then had an extra partition that had data in it.Went ahead to boot with the backtrack 4 disk BUT it did not give me an option for installing them side-by side so i did it manually by editing the partition with the partitioner! I had 2 swamp spaces one i which was initially there for Ubuntu and the other i created! Then simply formated ine partition with EXT3 and mountpoint of / which made two of them!after installation, the grub shows that there is another OS but when it does not load!

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Internet Connection When Upgraded 8.04 To 10.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I was running 8.04 and my internet (Comcast) comes via a Motorola SB5100 cable modem then into a Netgear router then into my Dell. When I upgraded to 10.04 yesterday, I lost the wired connection. The wireless connection still works fine, but I have not been able to get a wired connection. Also, most online solutions reference the Network Manager, which is nowhere to be found.

Anyone have any solutions? I would be willing to revert to 8.04 if needed, as that worked fine, and obviously I quite regret the upgrade!

General :: Customizations Are Lost When Ubuntu Distro Is Upgraded?

May 15, 2011

Ubuntu and other Linux distros have a limited useful life, for example Ubuntu only supports its current release until April 2012. If I decide to upgrade at that time, are my customizations lost, also add on software lost e.g. Codeweavers Crossover Office, and software running inside Crossover, etc.?

Fedora Installation :: Lost All Data On Drive By Bad Clicks - Change User To Root?

Jul 21, 2009

This is my 6th install of Fedora, begining with Fedora 4 I have had very good luck with all until 9 and I lost all data on drive by my bad clicks in a frustrated session. Now I have a great install of Fedora 10 with the exception that I fouled up and typed in a user (myself-'andybill') and am finding out that the work I need to do cannot be maximized by operating in user - andybill, I need to be super user. I have just moved and have not done any collaboration with our senior partner in a data development start up that he is the intellectual property in deed and law. For me to get back on track my using this OS I have to be master of all libraries, drivers etc. I am a nu-b (only 2 1/2 years, with no computer science background. This explains why I need step by step commands without abbriviated lingo-So if I can remove myself as andybill, make all root

Debian Hardware :: Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 - Upgraded Wheezy To Jessie And Lost USBs

May 8, 2015

I run Debian with Gnome on a beat up workhorse ThinkPad. I upgraded to Jessie last week with just one issue. Before the upgrade, I could plug in a USB drive (I use a couple of WD MyPassports most often) and they would mount, read, and write without a hitch.

Since the upgrade, when I plug in a USB drive, the file manager (3.14.1) sees the drive, but when I click on the drive to access/mount it, I receive a dialog box reading: Oops! Something went wrong. Unhandled error message: Error when getting information for file '/media/user/MyPassport1': Input/output error.

If I hit the little “eject” button in the file manager, then mount the drive as root from a command prompt [e.g., mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/external] I can run a directory of the drive, but ls -l /media/external fails. From the command prompt I am unable to perform reads or writes to the drive.

Rebooting into recovery mode (i.e., without Gnome), I get the same behavior with CLI messages reporting I/O errors with the drive. I can run a directory, but ls -l, reads, and writes fail.

This behavior is the same on all three USB ports. It is not limited to these MyPassport devices.

The drives work flawlessly on another headless machine upgraded to Jessie the same day. And on another still running Wheezy.

If I boot the ThinkPad from a live CD (Mint 14, I believe) the USB drives mount, read, and write fine.

My BIOS is up to date, 1.52.

lspci -v says this about USB ports:

Code: Select all00:1d.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [UHCI])
   Subsystem: Lenovo Device 20f0
   Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 0, IRQ 23
   I/O ports at 1880 [size=32]
   Capabilities: [50] PCI Advanced Features
   Kernel driver in use: uhci_hcd

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Lost Ability To Mount USB Drives

Apr 17, 2011

I've been using 10.10 for almost a year with no problems. Then last week I plugged in my MP3 player (ONDA vx777le) and it did not automount as it usually does. I have since found that any USB stick will not mount any more either. They show up in lsusb

ken@ken-desktop:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:c517 Logitech, Inc. LX710 Cordless Desktop Laser
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub .....

I also see this in messages when I plug it in:
Apr 17 01:40:21 ken-desktop kernel: [24379.152035] usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 14
I'm assuming This happened with some update but I don't know what one.

Ubuntu Installation :: Duplicate Drives In "Places" - Error "mount: /dev/sdd1 Already Mounted Or /media/Data Busy Mount: According To Mtab, /dev/sdd1 Is Already Mounted On /media/Data"

Feb 13, 2010

Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.

It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.

I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).

I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.

Hardware :: All Hard Drives Lost On Boot

Jul 28, 2010

Somehow after recent system update I'm unable to find any drives in the system. I see all of them in Bios, Grub finds them as well, but while loading the kernel and booting system to console they are missing. fdisk -l shows nothing (but somehow it did show me 1 drive for 5 minutes and then it was lost as well) I suspect that it was caused by udev and hal update, but I did etc-update and recompiled the kernel to a newer version (but with the old config) and it didn't work. I'm able to boot in the system and somehow work in it, although on the boot stage I get errors like /dev/sda1 is missing.

Ubuntu :: NTFS Data Lost After Shutting Down?

Jul 9, 2010

I have recently installed ubuntu 10.04 aside to my windows 7. One thing I tried out was to share firefox and thunderbird profiles. I have a separate NTFS partition for sharing stuff.Everything seemed to work fine. I had all my browsing history and bookmarks and emails shared nicely between windows and ubuntu. But now I have managed to lost data twice already (in one week time). The data itself is not so important (no need to recover it). But I'm just curious, why is this failing?

I use firefox ProfileManager (firefox -ProfileManager) to create a new profile. I did it in Ubuntu. I created a new folder on my Share partition and pointed profile there. Everything works fine. Profile is saved there and I can use it in Ubuntu. Now, after I shut down Ubuntu and go into Windows 7 (which was hibernated the whole time), the given folder is gone. And in Ubuntu, the folder is also gone.There are some other folders, which I created during my Ubuntu session, which are not visible in Windows, but are visible in Ubuntu.Does any one have any suggestions, how to make sharing data possible? Or why is my data getting lost.

Fedora :: Lost Mdadm Superblock But Not Drives / Can Rebuild Software RAID5?

I have an old Athlon XP 3000 machine that I keep around as a file server.It's currently got three 1TB drives which I had setup as mdadm raid 5 on FC10. The machine's original drive held the superblock for the raid array and it just had a massive heart attack. I've searched, my biggest source being URL...I can't tell if I can reassemble the superblock info lost with the original hard drive or if I've lost it all...

Ubuntu :: Accidently Lost External Data / Get That Back?

Jul 29, 2010

So I am working on a clients PC, and after I saved their data on an external hard drive I left it plugged in while I reinstalled Windows for them.....I HATE Windows. Stupid OS doesnt know any better than to just go deleting everything. Ubuntu would have known better than to delete multiple hard drives like that.

Anyway, please tell me I can salvage this data for my client? It was probably just reformatted. The data should still be there right?
