Re: moving files from home to data

You will simply mount the ntfs partition to a mountpoint to have access to it.

You can also enter the criteria in /etc/fstab to have it mount during boot,

Paste back the results of sudo blkid so I can provide you the necessary information.

Re: Sometimes it mounts, sometimes it doesn't!

I never liked the gnome virtual filesystem mounts so I use ntfs-3g. Comment your current fstab line and try UUID=8618238118236EFD /mnt/8618238118236EFD ntfs-3g noatime,nls=utf8,windows_names,dmask=002,fmask=111,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 Make sure that mount point exists when you change the line as I'm n...

Re: moving files from home to data

tlcmd,

Do you intend to share that data partition with a windows OS installation or is it going to be accessed exclusively by the LMDE3 OS :?:

If you do not intend to share it you would be better off formatting it ext4.

Re: Through own stupidity not able to boot Mint anymore

I also see you opted to do a non-encrypted installation which significantly simplifies things.

Looks much better than your original gparted screenshot :wink:

Hello lmfbr Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

It sounds like you're running the installation media.

The filesystem is not persistent so everything is basically lost when you shut it down.

Re: Could not refresh list of updates - date not known in source list? [SOLVED]

I can see you were the one manipulating sources from this result :D

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
Easy fix - enjoy Mint :wink:

Just to verify things before you do anything, boot the installation media open the terminal application and paste back the results of sudo blkid and remain in the live session.

Re: Windows doesn't boot after installing Linux Mint

After you install windows, use its shrink utility to make room for Mint. The amount of space is up to you, but 50 to 100gig should be enough. Make sure windows boots after shrinking its partition before continuing. When installing linux, choose the side-by-side option - it should be the first or sec...

Re: Windows doesn't boot after installing Linux Mint

Got it! Copied the files. By the way, do you think because I did the partitioning wrong I could have lost the files I had on my SSD or HDD before installing Mint? That's difficult to answer as I wasn't privy to exactly what you did. Can you attach a gparted screenshot of your partitions for sda and...

Re: Windows doesn't boot after installing Linux Mint

You would first maneuver to the file system where you would see folders bin, boot etc, etc.

The folder list will also show mnt - that's what you want to choose to get to the win folders/files.

As far as backing up you would just copy your stuff to another storage media, preferably an external HDD.
