so I just installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on my machine today and I disconnected my HDD so I can install it on the SSD cause I was afraid to erase the HDD data, first time installing Ubuntu without a VM btw, then when I connected the HDD again I found the two partitions in
/dev/sdb2 so I first tried running the
cd command to access the HDD but it tells me that
/dev/sdb1 is not a directory, then I tried copying a directory to the HDD to back it up and paste was grayed out, what can I do to access it.
Oh and I did some searching online most of the things I read said to mount the HDD using
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
but I get this message:
Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened. The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.
The output of the
mount | grep sdb command was
/dev/sdb1 on /media/ali/01D3FD2314DE1DE0 type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,uhelper=udisks2) /dev/sdb2 on /media/ali/01D3FD23187F1260 type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,uhelper=udisks2)
