Hello Arnaud and everybody else
> My Kubuntu 8.10 mounts my external HD which is NTFS
> without any issue
It is good to know that Kubuntu 8.10 can - in principle- mount and
access a NTFS formatted external HD. However, in my case there must be
still some missing link disabling me to mount mine.
I took a more thorough look in the package 'MountManager 0.2.4.'.
There, I found this info:
Mount point: Unknown
File system: ntfs
Dump flag: 0
Fsck value: 0
There is only one device here with an NTFS file system: the external
HD I am talking about. This implies that 'Mount Manager' can identify
it. But the 'mount point' is 'unknown'. Is there a way to manually
establish some 'mount point' without damaging the data on the ext. HD?
If not, is there a way to make it accessible again by formatting it,
after making a data backup via the Windows partition? Is there any
other clue to solve the problem?
Thx. for your feedback.
