My primary hard drive is a solid state 120 GiB with the following partitions: 1 MiB Bios Boot, 20 GiB root, 32 GiB SWAP, 68 GiB /home. I have a second hard drive that is 2 TiB that is mounted to /mnt/data currently. However, I would like the documents, pictures, music, and videos links in my file folder to be directed to that drive.
I have an old hard drive from a computer that was running Windows XP. My current system is Linux Mint 15 XFCE. I connected the old hard drive to my current system with a USB cable, and then opened Banshee. I clicked on "Media" and then "Import Media". I selected the entire hard drive as source, because the videos were located in a number of different folders.
My friends computer wouldn't boot up so he asked to me to take a look at it. I quickly noticed that the (well aged) hard drive was making a real bad grinding noise. I plugged the hard drive into another computer (and didn't boot off the faulty hard drive), and it would show up in BIOS but wouldn't show up in Windows.
Some HDD or computer problems can prevent your hard drive from being read properly. The inability to access a hard drive doesn't always indicate a malfunctioning drive so you might be able to fix the drive and recover important computer data upon an external hard drive enclosure. The hard drive enclosure is often a shell that you place your hard disk in.
