I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. My hard drives usually comes as: sda, with 'sudo blkid' and if I plug-in any USB drive, they comes as: sdb, sdc etc; after sda. That's fine!!!
But problem arises after I restart my laptop with connecting those USB drives. They alter and comes first and hard drive goes to the end, like: 'sudo blkid' shows, sda, sdb for USB drives and sdc for hard drives.
Hi...I am a new to the world of ubuntu. I have a question about using RAID on Ubuntu. I want to make a file server. My friend suggested I shoud use Ubuntu Desktop and not the Ubuntu server. I have already installed Ubuntu and it works great. My question comes in configuring my hard drives.
I have three hard drives. One with 250GB where ubuntu is installed.
First of all I would like to thank all the moderators, members and everyone who have helped me in the past for the queries I had. This is a wonderful community and I am so glad that I was part of it (though most of the time I was asking rather then helping others).
I do have my reasons for going back to ios, but that doesn't mean my love for android is less.
I am new to Linux and to Ubuntu, I was wondering, I have two hard drives setup in SATA ports (non-raid, at least I don't think they are). I installed ubuntu unto the drives fresh without any previous versions or windows at all.
However when I got the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS working, all I see is 1 x 120 gigabyte harddrive.
I am a novice user who upgraded to 11.10. In my previous version of Ubuntu, icons of my external drives(2) were visible and I could mount and navigate these drives. I cannot locate my external hard drives with 11.10. I have searched the questions with similar titles and have not found a solution.
The command: sudo fdisk -l does list both external hard drives.
I got one of those cables that you can connect to caseless IDE or SATA hard drive and then plug it into a USB port and it's worked great for the most part. Out of 20 or so hard drives, it's only had problems with two IDE drives.
I was wondering if it is a good idea to replace a hard drive in a (fairly) system-critical database server after a certain number of years of use, before it dies. For example, I was thinking of replacing a hard drive after 3 years of use. Since I have many hard drives across servers, I could stagger which hard drives are replaced.
