This says you have a device sg1 that can hold 2 Trillion Bytes!!??
Also says sdb has a partition #1
Really??? a 2 Trillion Byte MicroSD Chip??? Quick - where do I get one?
OK - OK , different system and yes there are Multi-Trillion HDs out there.
Mine also mount as sdb1 and so forth. Caution - these USB external drives have been
know to fail. Beyond forensic recovery!
. 1) - connect them only for the time you need and then sync and dismount.
. 2) - PLEASE, PLEASE burn to DVDs anything you are going to shed tears over if lost.
You heard this from the Voice of Experience.
