How do I create a folder on my usb drive via command line AND drag/drop via places > usb?

chad@Secured:~$ sudo mkdir /media/Backup
Password:
chad@Secured:~$ sudo chmod a+w /media/Backup
chad@Secured:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/Backup
mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /media/Backup busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is mounted on /media/Backups
What filesystem do you use on your USB drive? If it's NTFS: Linux cannot write to NTFS partitions unless you install ntfs-3g (take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_edgy_eft_ntfs_ntfs_3g

For example, in Vista you can do the whole computer snapshot which I've done, took 2 DVD's. I'd like to do the same only on the Ubuntu partition. If possible, would I be able to restore that snapshot and entirely wiping out any current partitions on my laptop?
Take a look at the tutorials in this section: http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/34
Something like Ghost4Linux, dd, or SystemImager should work for you.
