Find USB directory


I am using fedora 24.

I have plugged in a USB disk. I can see it using the command fdisk -l.

I want to make a copy of some files I have been working on in /vat/www/HTML.

Where is my USB auto mounted to (and how can I see that)?

Then will thatt tell me where I can copy my directory files to?


To see if it auto mounted, run mount, chance are, it didn’t.

And if mount does return it, it will tell you where it was auto mounted.

It lists about 30 lines but I don’t see the /dev/sdb.

How do I put it on?

well if you know it is /dev/sdb, you may want to try something like

mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usb

replace /media/usb with the directory you want it mounted to

It says wrong fs type, bad super block on /dev/sdb1 missing codepage or helper program

To fix the fs type, if you know it, you can supply it via mount -t <filetype> /dev/sdb1 /media/usb0, as for the bad super block… well, that’s going to be hard to overcome and I haven’t done anything like that in a long time…

Ok I can research that. Thx for your help!
