http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, Im adding a new HDD using this tutorial - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...gANewHardDrive Seems all is well, seems. My drive was sdc so I used that, which is fine. When it came to using this this line in the tutorial: Code: sudo mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdc1 I just dont get it. I used: Code: sudo mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdc Because I have no idea where the '1' comes from. It gave me a warning about it using the whole device. When I went to Code: sudo lshw -C disk again, there was still no '1' showing on it. Can someone please tell me the relevance of the '1' and what I can type in to actually see it labelled as that. Should I do it again and use the '1'? (Hardware)
