Hi,

I'm trying to migrate all my data to a newly bought LS-QVL without passing the data through the network (too slow).
I've enabled ssh access and am trying to mount an external 3TB USB drive from my Windows computer.

No luck so far, and I can't even figure out whether the system actually sees the partition.

Here's my fdisk:
Code:
# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sda1               1      121602   976762583+ ee EFI GPT

Disk /dev/sdb: 801.5 GB, 801569726464 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 97451 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sdb1               1      267350  2147483647+ ee EFI GPT


(note that none of the disks are 3TB)

Here's my dmesg snippet:
Code:

sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI disk


Mounting sdb or sdb1 doesn't work:

Code:
root@LS-QVL321:~# mount -t auto /dev/sdb /mnt/sdb1            
mount: mounting /dev/sdb on /mnt/sdb1 failed: Invalid argument
root@LS-QVL321:~# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
mount: mounting /dev/sdb1 on /mnt/sdb1 failed: No such file or directory


Strangely it looks like it sees the 3TB disk as a 801GB disk - maybe that's the problem.
At the same time I can access that disk ok from my computer via the Net USB Navigator.

Any ideas?

Updated from 1.68 to 1.69. Nothing has changed. Still 801 GB and unmountable.

Your USB- Device is modifyed to allow access from winxp

You can backup all data and format the drive with you linkstation in XFS

to use the xfs- drive with windows you can use colinux
