Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting External Ntfs Usb Drive?

Mar 25, 2011

I have been trying to use fstab, writing a script in /etc/init.d to mount my external ntfs usb drive. I have had absolutely no luck and I have tried just about every solution I could find on the web except for writing a udev rule which I have never done so I am not exactly sure how.

My solution for the interim is to put the mount command in the rc.local file. That works, but I don't understand why I can use fstab to mount it. Putting it in the fstab gives me errors like "unknown file system" or just "An error occurred during mounting of drive" and then the booting stops. I tried using both ntfs and ntfs-3g.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting External Usb Hard Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I have attached a 1.5 TB external hard drive to my new Ubuntu server. I mount it in /media/external. I used sudo mount /dev/sdx# /media/external but sdx# keeps changing. I added a line to fstab to mount it permanently but after couple of our it unmounts itself and /media/external is empty. It is in vfat format but webmin shows it as ntfs.

Quote:
cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Ubuntu :: Mounting An External USB Hard Drive?

Jan 16, 2010

I'm trying to get ubuntu 9.04 to recognize a Maxtor One Touch III USB external hard drive. This drive has been formatted and used on a Windows XP. I cleared everything off but am trying to see if I can arrange it so that I can back up from linux and access (if need be) from a Windows machine.

Here is what I get with fdisk -l:

/dev/sda1 * 1 14219 114214086 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14220 14593 3004155 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 14220 14593 3004123+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

Ubuntu :: Mounting An ACOMDATA External Hard Drive

I'm using Ubuntu 9.04, and I can't seem to get my ACOMDATA external hard drive to work. It is plugged into the PC using a USB cable, and it is read as a removable storage device on both Win.

General :: Mounting External NTFS Drive With Different Driver

Feb 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?

Software :: Deleted Partition Now External Drive Not Mounting

Mar 27, 2010

My brother has an external hard drive that has some personal data on it that he doesn't want to lose. He was reinstalling windows on his machine and deleted both the partition on his internal drive and on his external drive. He installed windows on his internal drive only though. I want to be able to reaccess that data from the drive. All the data should still be on the drive since so write cycles have been done to overwrite it.

I guess deleting the partition removed the partition table or something so the drive doesnt mount. I would prefer to use linux (but windows is ok too) and a free as in beer tool preferably. there are normal recovery tools (I have used get data back before) that scan for any files anywhere that has been overwritten but I don't really need things that have been overwritten; just the data that is still there but not availible because it cant be mounted.

Debian Hardware :: External Hard Drive Not Registering / Mounting

May 22, 2014

My external hard drive (about 2 years old) won't mount. It wouldn't mount on Windows either. Other external hard drives (sdb1) mount perfectly.

I am wondering is there a Linux way of getting the hard drive to work again? The disc spins up so it's not a mechanical failure. I'm guessing here but is there a way of flashing firmware onto the external HD if that might be the problem?

(Seagate 2TB ST320005EXD101-RK)

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation

General :: Mounting To Dreambox - Cant Locate The External Drive Anymore

Dec 21, 2010

Have a QNAP TS219P+ with two Samsung disks and a WD as extern disk on my Nas. I also have a Dreambox 800 Satellite receiver. Both Linux. I mounted the satellite receiver to my NAS and also a mount to the extern drive. This all works well, until.

I programmed the NAS to go down at midnight and to startup again in the morning. All the mounts are back and working, except the mount from my dreambox to the extern drive. It seems that the dreambox cant locate the extern drive anymore, while the NAS recognice the extern drive well. I first must shut down the whole system, reconnect the extern drive, startup again the NAS, startup again the dreambox reconnect the extern drive and with some luck all is up and working again.

The mounting is done via NFS and this is my line:

Has someone an idea what this mounting problem is?

Slackware :: External USB Hard Drive Auto-mounting Error

Nov 29, 2009

Just installed Slackware 13 this morning. It's been a long time since I last tried Linux, but Slack works (a lot easier than Slack 8 did back when I last used it!) quite well. I'm using the XFCE desktop and it's smooth as silk except for one odd problem-I cannot get any of my USB drives to mount. I just plugged in my Lexar 4GB USB flash drive and received an error message. Here's from /var/log/messages from when I initally plugged in the drive (I have a 500GB WD MyBook USB external drive that is always plugged in):

Any ideas or suggestions of what to look at? I'm not familiar with HAL in Linux although I've seen plenty of discussion about it and have an idea of what it's supposed to (or break! ).

Ubuntu :: External Drive - Message - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 32

Mar 31, 2010

Accidentally the usb plug on my WD "My Book" got halfway unplugged and I didn't notice it. when I rebooted it, it wouldn't read the drive. I tried using G Parted to repair it but no success, it just runs forever accessing the drive and never finishes. (I left it running an entire weekend and it didn't finish) the drive is formated ext3.

When I try to mount the drive in Ubuntu 9.10 it gives this error message:

Strangely if I boot into Windows and use the ext driver I can access the drive just fine. is this something I can fix? if needed I can use Windows to do any repairs.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting /var Partition As Network Drive

Mar 24, 2010

I'm setting up a server, and someone asked me (after I was done installing and formatting) whether the external hard disk attached to this server (with the /var partition) could also be mounted as a network drive for easy file transfer (i.e. drag-drop file transfer without ssh/scp or sftp). If someone has any ideas on how a pre-formatted (ext4) partition can be simultaneously made available as a network drive readable by a Windows machine.

Ubuntu Servers :: Do Symbolic Links Force Drive Mounting?

May 30, 2010

I have a 8.04 LTS server that i have installed a new 1TB drive. The server is running great but I am bit confused regarding the ln -s command and drive mounting. I have backuppc installed on the server and I am running out of storage space. To reolve this I moved the cpool and pool directories to the 1 TB drive and type from within the /var/lib/backuppc directory ln -s cpool /store/1TB/cpool this created the symbolic link to the new drive and everything works fine. I then rebooted the server and everything is runing fine but the drive does not show up in the df -h command, however the directories appear to be mounted fine.

I thought the drive would not be mounted automatically until it was defined in the fstab. Does the ln -s command force the system to automatically mount the directories but not the volume? This behaviour has caused me to delete my backup data becuase I was sure the disk was not mounted but is was!

Ubuntu :: Change The Mounting Point Of A Usb External Drive From '/media/disk' To '/media/Movies'

Jan 16, 2011

I was trying to change the mounting point of a usb external drive from '/media/disk' to '/media/Movies'

Here is were the stupid part takes over... I right clicked on the desktop icon for the device and selected Properties. From there I selected the Volume tab and in there I changed the mounting point to '/media/Movies' It accepted it and said the changed would take place when I unmounted it and remounted it. However, when I did this it now says it cannot be mounted as it says mount_point contains invalid characters usually /

Unfortunately, now I cannot get back into the properties to remove my error.

Ubuntu Servers :: Backing Up A Server To An External Drive?

Jul 17, 2010

I have an Ubuntu server running Lucid. I'd like to be able to back up the hard drive in the server to an external hard drive. I try to plug in a drive via a USB port and it doesn't appear to mount automatically, as it does on the desktop version. Questions: 1) What/where should I be looking for to see if the drive is mounted? (I've looked in /dev and /media; no dice.) 2) What's the mount command I should use to manually mount the external hard drive? 3) What backup commands or programs, other than rsync, are recommended? (Nothing against rsync.)

Fedora Servers :: Samba Share On External USB Drive?

May 29, 2009

I have a server which currently has a samba share for a printer and my home directory. Both have been working fine for a while now. I have a drobo (which is like a little USB RAID machine) connect via USB to the linux box. While trying to share it via samba I get weird messages from my windows machine (see screenshot). I have tried to share multiple folders on this drobo and no luck, all the same result.

I also tried a symbolic link, no good.

Here is a screen shot

Ubuntu :: Usb External Hdd Not Mounting?

Feb 24, 2011

I have an 3.5 sata hdd that I use as a external hdd. Everything has been working fine untill last week I pluged it in and nothing will show up I cant get the option to mount it. When I open gparted, the blue LED will blink a few times on the hdd. When I go to change devices in gparted all I get is /dev/sda. If I plug in an thumg drive then I will get the options of /dev/sda and /dev/sdc. So I think that it knows that /sdb is there

ps. my friends thinks it might be a logical error, I'm not sure what that means.

Ubuntu :: Mounting External Encrypted HDD With Ext3 Filesystem

Jan 20, 2010

I have a external HDD with eSATA and USB connectors available. I want to use this HDD to store my backups. The HDD should be encrypted (my main system is as well).

So here is what I did so far:
1) I used the following code to create the encrypted LUKS partition with EXT3 Filesystem:
Code:
cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sdb1
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 luks
mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/luks
The system always hang when I executed the "mkfs.ext3..." command, so I switched the HDD from eSATA to USB and then it worked fine.

2) When I switched on the ext. HDD the first time, the drive was recognized automatically and Nautilus asked for the password. I typed it in as checked the checkbox to remember the password in the future. For the backup I use a nice script that I found in another forum, where I can define a mountpoint and then the script will check for previous backups and only make a incremental backup based of the latest version. The script also mounts the drive automatically. In order to always have the same mountpoint, I want to make an entry in the /etc/fstab using the UUID of the ext. HDD.

Whatever I tried, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? Here is my current /etc/fstab
Code:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root during installation
UUID=2ea47421-73ce-4c66-9606-8a1db81ae640 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=dbdeb793-1d4e-43ea-8986-7b37fdbc9674 /boot ext3 relatime 0 2
# /home was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-home during installation
UUID=42702091-83e6-43eb-aad1-108f43eedf9d /home ext3 relatime 0 2
# swap was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-swap during installation
UUID=e225bcf9-908b-4226-a963-6b02ee658df1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
# Eintrag wegen iPhone
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=125,devmode=666,nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
# external HDD
UUID=913977f7-8fa6-416f-af79-b5f913b68f53 /media/backup-hdd ext3 noauto,users 0 0
I made the "none /proc/bus/usb..." entry because it was recommended to ensure correct behaviour of the iPhone. Not sure if I need it though.

I created the mountpoint with this command:
Code:
sudo mkdir /media/backup-hdd
Now it seems the mountpoints owner is not root - strange right?
Code:
2 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 michael michael 4096 2010-01-15 02:45 backup-hdd
How should I mount this drive correctly? It will be automounted as every USB device, but that should not be the case. I want the script to mount and unmount the drive.
