Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just installed ubuntu 12.10 and everything is running fine but there are a few things that I am not sure about.

In computer, when I click on the hard disk it says "unable to mount location - can't mount file" and when I right click it the type/size/volume/accessed/modified are all unknown. However everything seems to be partitioned correctly.

Also, when I right click file system properties it lists the correct amount of free space, but volume is unknown and the contents reads as 140 TB.

As I said everything is working fine but are these issues I should be concerned about?

can you add the output of df -h as well as fdisk -l –  Shutupsquare Dec 31 '12 at 10:14

ran fdisk -l but nothing came up –  Matt Walker Dec 31 '12 at 10:18
    
Sorry you need to run sudo fdisk -l Im guessing you can't edit your question yet that’s why the outputs in the comments. –  Shutupsquare Dec 31 '12 at 10:20
    
ah yes, done that now –  Matt Walker Dec 31 '12 at 10:32
