Re: Install Extra SATA HDD

Sounds strange but 'sda' is my new drive and 'sdb' is my core drive. I thought it was odd too but maybe that's how it's physically connected to the power supply. Confirmed this by reading the details in the LH column. Very good point to check.

Re: Install Extra SATA HDD

Kadaitcha Man - followed your instructions precisely, selected Format Disk option ==> the following 'Error formatting disk' warning came up:-
"Error synchronizing after initial wipe: Timed out waiting for objects (udisks-error-quark,0)"
Have no idea what is happening. Help.

Re: Install Extra SATA HDD

Kadaitcha Man - you mentioned 'use the disks tool format and mount it'.
Where would I find the disk tools? Very new to this.
