Disk utility shows the first partition labeled as sdb2


Before doing a clonezilla project I opened
Disk utility shows the first partition labeled as sdb2, then second partition as sdb1is this normal?
I will add that this is a windows drive, but I wanted to back it up before installing debian to it.
How will the disk partition labeling affect partition naming in debian?

In a terminal window, run "fdisk -l" and show the output here. What fdisk shows as the disk partition arrangement is what Debian will see when you try to install Debian.

I didn't think about that 1 as much as I suggest it.
Now I know they've been renamed. I think I need to go back & hide sdb2 since someone obviosly unhid it.
