Re: Windows System Drive showing in Linux

You can always 'eject' it from the file manager or use unmount in the terminal to unmount it. I have accessed/written windows partitions from linux for years with n...

Hello Giagl Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

If the windows partition shows as unmounted then you should not be able to access the contents.

Can you paste back the results of lsblk

Re: Difficulty installing new software or updating

The X86 just means it's for Intel processor architecture.

You can use sudo apt-get install virtualbox virtualbox-dkms virtualbox-ext-pack virtualbox-guest-additions-iso virtualbox-qt for all the components.

Thanks With the external plugged in and not mounted use sudo mke2fs -v -t ext4 -m 1 /dev/sdb1 to format the partition. Make sure it's not mounted with ...
