Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That's correct, from the machine you want it to work on, not the old one. You say you have data in /home/Fatass32, but that directory is not used as a mountpoint for your FAT32 partition apparently. If you run
ls -l /mnt/data
do you have the same data in there? I doubt it. For as far as I can see you have that directory and if you put data in there then it only exists in there, not on your FAT32 partition as required, that is, if you want the data on your partition instead of the directory you'll need to make some changes.
Sorry for the delay, I was in a meeting. If I understand you correct you have data in /home/bhakta/Fatass32 and you have data in /mnt/data and they are not the same data right? You want to merge the data from those two points and have it available in one mountpoint under /home/bhakta/Fatass32?
No, that's why I asked you about your mountpoints earlier. Apparently you saved your data in the directory /home/bhakta/Fatass32 and not on the partition. When you mounted the partition on that same directory the data was rendered invisible. So you'll need to unmount the partition, mount it on another mountpoint, move the data from the /home/bhakta/Fatass32 directory to the alternate mountpoint and mount the partition on the directory /home/bhakta/Fatass32.
