Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

I am sorry, I still can't get my head around this. If I don't do anything but open file browser I see this below. Does this not indicate that the 250 and 160 Gb drives are mounted from startup? I don't do anything to mount them, and from startup I can retrieve and save files, or I could until told t...

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

Ok, well, thanks again for your patience. I freely admit to being a computer dyslectic (although probably better than some as I do try and I seem able to assemble hardware). My 250Gb hard drive even if the disc full messages are erroneous is approaching the point where it will be full. I have theref...

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

HiFlemur, just some things I do not understand before I proceed. I fear loss of files. it is easy enough to be sure the drive is mounted as it is accessible as soon as I have booted up, therefore I presume mounted. To be sure I have been opening the drive file. It is displayed: 5CB7374977644613. Now...

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

deckluck, apologies, but I am not a computer enthusiast, merely a user trying to utilise Linux. I have a pretty old machine, Pentium dual 2.6Ghz, Acer Aspire 2650. I had the 250 Gb hard drive and just stuck it in to provide backup. I find it perfectly adequate and I do not wish to spend on new kit. ...

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

"Edit: you can check the actual usable space by trying to use it all. In a terminal, "cd" to the partition and then do"

Flemur, did you mean write 'cd' in the terminal end then enter? Sorry, I do not speak 'computer'. Doing this does not appear to do anything.

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

Hi deckluck,
I do not use a back up utility. I simply copy files over. Works fine for me. The drive is internal.

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

Asinoro, I mean no offence, but those two links seem to bear no relevance at all to my issue. Tell me if I am wrong. My 250gb disc is mounted, and i can read the files on it. There is as shown by Properties one partition. It must surely be mounted if I can read from it. I do not want to tinker with ...

Re: 2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

I am told the drive is full, whether I drag and drop, save from LibreOffice, or copy and paste.
Thanks.

2nd hard drive said to be full but appears not

HI, here I am again asking for assistance. I have little idea what is going on here. I have a main hard drive which has two partitions, one of which has Mint 18.3 Sylvia, the other is 160 Gb with my files on, and a second hard drive of 250Gb which is back up and has a lot of extra media files, parke...

Re: USB stick read only

Hi Gittiest,
I find now that with the 32Gb drive, the whole mount options window is greyed out, so unable to make the change. It's as if it's anticipated me!

Re: USB stick read only

In response to Jerry, I cannot see how to delete the small partition on the 30Gb drive. GParted shows 'delete' greyed out.

Re: USB stick read only

Camera image of 'Backup 30Gb'. Interesting that I have never had any problem with files on an SD card, reading or writing or reusing many times. Menu from clicking cogs greyed out.

OK, three usb drives.
First one, backup 30Gb all items under cogs popup greyed out - no screenshot possible as the window closed on opening screenshot.
Two others, screenshots attached.
