I installed e second sata HD in my PC. I have two questions:
1. the HD was never used, it's a 2TB WD green caviar. I created msdos partition tables (is that ok?) and then I formatted to ext4. Without any activity on the disk it results that about 24GB of space are already in use? Is that possible? Does partition information take all that space?
3. I'll use the disk as a media device, so I want it mounting into my home directory. I created the directory /home/pietro/arxiv and then I added the following line to the fstab
- Code: Select all
/dev/sdb1 /home/pietro/arxiv ext4 defaults,users 0 1
now I can see the disk mounted in /home/pietro/arxiv but I I have a strange thing in my Caja right pannel. If you have a look to the attached 01.png you'll see both HD1 (which is the disk label) and arxiv disk which does not result mounted on. If I click on HD1 it's ok. But if I click on arxiv I get the message box in picture 02.png
I wonder whether I did something wrong in my fstab, is my mounting done right, how can I remove that problem from caja?
