mountpoint showing for 2 different drives


df -a shows:
Code:
/dev/sdc1                               -          -          -    - /mnt/localBackup
/dev/sde1                      4845160336    4440132 4596515296   1% /mnt/localBackup
W/O the "-a" switch, /dev/sdc1 does not show.

This is causing me a problem. How can I get rid of the /dev/sdc1? `umount -f` doesn't work. I'm not in a position to reboot.

You can probably umount /dev/sde1 first, and then umount /dev/sdc1 next. Since /dev/sde1 is mounted over /dev/sdc1, I don't think you'll be able to umount /dev/sde1 until /dev/sdc1 is umounted.

I had occasion to umount/mount /dev/sde1 several times (automated scripts), but I never did attempt the unmount /dev/sdc1. Nevertheless, that bogus mounting seems to have disappeared and is not causing me trouble anymore. Odd, but I guess the problem is solved.
