mount usb drive


My old Slackware drive has data that I need to transfer to a USB backup drive.

The Slackware drive is IDE with Slackware version 9.1.0. It needs to be retired.

The USB drive is formatted HPFS.

What should I use in /dev/???/ to mount the USB drive?

Larry

I wonder, is HPFS supported by the default kernel? It is an odd choice for a usb drive...

I would get that HPFS off and reformat to something sane, unless you really need it.

Try
Connect the USB drive then

$ cat /proc/partitions
or
$ su -
# fdisk -l
