    I have recently purchased USB external hard disk drive (500Gig) and need to use it as as a backup drive for linux. My distro is fedora 10. I had mount it and I cannot save data on it. When I plug it on it is being detected and when I open it I found out that there is a folder lost+found. This folder could not be displayed if clicked.

    here is my vi /etc/fstab file

    /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 / ext3 rw 0 0
    /proc /proc proc rw 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /boot ext3 rw 0 0
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
    none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw 0 0
    sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs rpc_pipefs rw 0 0
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/Administrator/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=Administrator 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal 0 0
    /dev/sdc1 /media/disk ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal 0 0

    [email protected] ~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    142G 7.1G 127G 6% /
    /dev/sda1 190M 21M 160M 12% /boot
    tmpfs 2.0G 88K 2.0G 1% /dev/shm
    /dev/sdb1 459G 199M 435G 1% /mnt/sdb1
    /dev/sdc1 459G 199M 435G 1% /media/disk

    How do I fix this

    What's the output of
    fdisk -l
    Is the USB disk sdb or sdc?
