But the backup directory I made is none of these.

Code:
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ ls /media/
autorun.inf          RECYCLER        System Volume Information
FreeAgentGoNext.ico  Seagate Backup  Win XP Backup
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$

No, I didn't.
If I knew how to paste it here, I would paste the screenshots of my screen here, so that you see how I used the GUI luckybackup, but I don't know how, and I don't think is even possible.

Hello Repo:

Sorry I was away for a while, OK, so this is the outcome of that command:

Code:
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ ls /media/FreeAgent/
ls: cannot access /media/FreeAgent/: No such file or directory
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ ls sudo /media/FreeAgent/
ls: cannot access /media/FreeAgent/: No such file or directory
sudo
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$

But of course this is not right, because I know that HD is mounted. I can see it under places ==> Computer ==>

Also :

Code:
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ ls /media/
apt  FreeAgent Drive  Ubuntu-Netbook 10.10 i386
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$

Code:
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1  /media
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.
The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which
could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$
Code:
mansour@ubuntu-notebook:~$ mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)
