How do you resolve: Ext. Hard Drive (/dev/sba2) not found/does not exist.


I was wondering if it would help help to upgrade to Linux Mint 20 (Cinnamon) and run the .iso from the beginning, (like it was a fresh install?) Would that help to make /dev/sba2 "visible" in the terminal?

Thanks in advance,

Pen guin

@Pen guin

Do you know how to mount a file system?
Plug it in, look at dmesg, fdisk, parted, lsblk, and find out what device node it is.

Then mount the file system somewhere.
Code:
mount /dev/sdb2 ~/path/path
If you want read-write to a ntfs file system then use ntfs-3g
Code:
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb2 ~/path/path
Then do what you will with the files. You are making this way too hard.

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...es-4175677957/

That shows partitions
/dev/sdb1 1.81TB ntfs
/dev/sdb2 442GB ntfs
/dev/sdb3 1.39TB ext4

Look at the man pages.
man mount
man ntfs-3g
man lsblk
man fdisk

Mount the file system and the files will be available to do what you wish.

If you mount it as root, then you'll need to be root to write to it.
