Most Ubuntu derivatives auto-mount partitions/drives under the /media directory. In the file manager in your image above, click the green up arrow to the left of /home/jacinthe twice which should take you to the / directory. Look for the /media directory and click it (twice??) to open. You could also click on the media folder under the Directory Tree on the left. Look there. Usually the partitions are identified by a series of letters/numbers.

The picture in the first post shows the name of the device as '/dev/dm-0'

fdisk -l showed these disks:
Code:
/dev/sda 
/dev/sdb

Disk /dev/mapper/isw_hieifadie_Data-0 
/dev/mapper/isw_hieifadie_Data-0p1 

Disk /dev/mapper/isw_hieifadie_Data
/dev/mapper/isw_hieifadie_Data1
I guess it must be one of the /dev/mapper because of the picture you showed. I don't know how to mount it, but maybe someone else know.

You have LVM which I've no experience with so take a look at the link below which gives a fairly simple explanation which hopefully, will work?:

The second hard disk is a Windows disk. I might be mistaken, but I doubt that LVM comes into play in that case.

Maiko, did you try the suggestion in post #13?

I think you are suffering from pcmanfm blues in ZorinOS.

If me.

Code:
 sudo mkdir /media/sdb1
then

Code:
sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/sdb1
Close terminal and look in /media/sdb1 to see what is inside.

http://linuxblog.darkduck.com/2012/0...ement-for.html

Quote:
There is a usual set of applications in the Accessories section of the menu: Terminal, File Manager (PCManFM), Archive Manager, Calculator, Character Map and so on.
Probably no automount feature in ZorinOS Lite and PCManFM.

Probably need to manually /etc/fstab in ZorinOS to get pcmanfm to recognize /dev/sdb on bootup but since you are a new user. I won't touch that. I am OK doing my own stuff. Not others.

Are you sure that that should not be /dev/sdb1 instead of /dev/sdb?
