David, Senior Member. Priorities certainly do change. I do not understand much of what you are saying,but I am learning fast. By the way, I have a partioned hard drive and it works just fine. However, I have an F: drive(storage) and I do not know how to put things on it. I have a lot of e-mails (recipes) that I wouldlike to save to this drive, but haven't the foggiest how. I do not want to zip anyfolders. Any advice welcome. Thank you,

dearcat

Hi everybody, especially Schneidz in Boston. Stupid Dearcat is back. I left my brain either in Plymouth or Wareham or maybe up on the Hill. Well, down to business. I am not sure just what you mean. I work in Linux.I have the F drive mounted but don't know what df -h is. I have my regular (C) hard drive,partioned. I have just a little piece of an old Windows program on it. I play a very old game. What I want to do is transfer some mamaged folders from my e-mail to my F (storage) drive. I don'tknow how to show you. The fact is I have two hard drives. This computer was made from two computers.Does any of this make sense? Thanks

The point schneidz is making is that only MSWin refers to drives as C:, D:, ... etc.
In Linux we go into the cmd line and run
Code:
/sbin/fdisk -l

cat /etc/fstab
where 'l' is lowercase 'L'
Please post the output of those cmds.

In Linux all disks are mount under one dir hierarchy, not a separate one for each disk at the normal user level.

eg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesy...archy_Standard

Chris from Brisbane, thanks. I'm sorry, but I do not understand a thing you said. I wish I had never let my friend talk me into Linux. I was at home with MSWIN. Maybe I should just give up on Linux. In WIN I would just drag and drop. I tried copying the folder to Libre then copying to Storage drive. Did not work. I do not even know if my computer will support Windows 7. I guess I am stuck. Windows very expensive. Well,I will just keep struggling. At least I am not doing newsletters or the such now. Just for enjoyment. Thank you again,

dearcat
