I formatted an external hdd and seemed to have successfully transferred many files to it. However it's icon doesn't show up on my desktop now. and Gparted claims the thing is "Unallocated". Is that certain there's nothing on there?
LWN.net: "Despite a heroic effort by developers and testers, we have not been able
to reach Beta release criteria by the time of the Go / No Go meeting.
There are still unresolved bugs and unknown test results."
