http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on my HP Pavillion tx2000 laptop. Most things are working swell, but my USB HD (which is a FreeAgent Desktop 1TB, not so new model) is having some problems. Sometimes it has problems unmounting properly before i remove it. When I plug it back in there is still a 'FreeAgent\ Drive' folder in /media/. When the drive is mounted, it is mounted as '/media/FreeAgent\ Drive_', and the next time as '/media/FreeAgent\ Drive__', which means that all my torrents have to be rehashed, and my entire music library has to be rescanned a lot of times when I remove the drive. Is there a way to avoid this? (Hardware)
