My laptop hard disk got crashed. But until I replace I want to do my home works. So I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on 16GB Kingston DT101 G2 pen drive.
My question is, using my pen drive as my regular disk for 1 or 2 weeks is that OK ? Will I get any problems in my pen drive? After I replace my hard disk can I use that pen drive as normal ( just assume I will use my laptop at least 12 hours per day).
can I use the dd command to clone my ubuntu installation from my external disk to my local hard drive. will it even boot? I think I can, but not sure. do I need to make the output partition on my local disk the exact size as the input partition on the usb?
Hi gurus, during playing movie via VLC or SMPlayer I get several time the error that file cannot be read. File was stored on external USB disk. During this error I get another dialogue message that says the new removable disk was connected..., just as if power goes off and on again or if I power on external disk.
Today I was trying to copy some files from my external hard drive (1TB) to a flash drive (4GB) on Ubuntu 12.10. My flash drive contained an operating system, so I decided to format it using the disk management tool that comes with Ubuntu.
Unfortunately I ended up formating my external hard drive, and it was mounted. I formated it to FAT, and in the beginning it was NTFS.
Hello, I am a new ubuntu user. I installed ubuntu OS dual boot with windows 7 for school and my external hard drive which I have connected all the time stops working. When I open My computer in windows 7, I see the local disk that corresponds to my external drive (name changed from MyBook to local disk:F).
I just got my WD 3 TB hard drive. I put it in an external dual disk duplicator (max USB3) and partitioned and formatted it GUID with partitions of 2.2 TB and 800 GB. The larger partition was for Time Machine backup for my iMac.
I then transferred the new drive to an older external case (USB2, FW400, FW800 & eSATA).
