Question Paths Changed for Removable HD and Win HD


My removable HD use to be /mnt/removable but has now taken over the /mnt/win_c3 mount for some reason. They work fine but they seemed to have magically swapped paths.

How can I remount these drives to the appropriate path?

Thanks guys!!

Greg

Do you have auto-mounting configured? If so, have you checked the automount paths? Check /etc/auto.master to get a rough sense of whether anything is automounted. It may refer to other config files which you can check too.

Sorry for the delayed response, I've been out of town.

I don't see any /etc/auto.master file. Auto mounting seems to be on. If I attach a USB CF Card it seems to find it much like the Windoze plug & play, but that's all I know.

I pasted the contents of my fstab file below. As you can see I now have a /mnt/removable, /mnt/removable2 and /mtn/removable3 for the same external HD. I turned the HD off and on and my problem seemed to dissapear - - the drive found its original /mnt/removable path. But when I tried this again later it just started showing up as removable2, and then later removable3.

I'm a little reluctant to just delete these paths in the fstab. What do you think?

(BTW, I'm using Mandrake 10 and KDE 3.2).

I greatly appreciate your feedback,
Greg

OK, that seems to have your answer -- note the line specifying removable /dev/sda1 is to be mount on /mnt/win_c3. You can change /mnt/win_c3 to something else and it should work fine (save a backup copy of /etc/fstab just in case).

Ahhhh okay, thanks a lot. I went ahead an also removed the lines refering to the removable2 and removable3 since they aren't needed, but they are still mounted in /mnt.

Do I just use :
Code:
umount /dev/removable2
??????


Again, much thanks
Greg
