I have an external hard drive mounted on my server running ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Server). Whenever my system restarts I click on the icon appearing within
/media/mydisk and my external drive starts appearing in
df -h. Before clicking, my external drive does not appear. My problem is I had to reboot my system from a remote location, therefore after rebooting, my external drive does not appear within
By mistake I ran
mkfs.ext4 at the partition accessible from
cat /proc/partitions. Now i fear that my data might have got deleted. Is it true?
Also how can I access my external drive within
/media/mydisk From a remote location without requiring to open
