Hi

So, if you "su - root" or "sudo su - root" and...
1) do a "mount | grep -i sdc1" do you see the drive mounted somewhere?
2) if not, if you do a "mount -v -o noatime /dev/sdc1 /mnt/<any_empty_directory>" does it work?

Cheers

You have to "su" or "sudo su" to the "root" user.

What "says"?

Ok, GPT - then your drive is probably very large like 2, 3 or 4TB, and/or you have an EFI bios, right?
Sorry, I have no experience with GPT nor EFI-stuff => I leave this thread.
