When I plug in an external USB drive, it automatically mounts and it's accesible in /media/disk/
However after a while, this is how my /media directory looks like:
cesar@minas-tirith:~$ ls /media/ 0BC7-569E 0BC7-569E_ disk disk_ disk__ disk___
As you can see, the
disk entry is repeated with additional
_ appended at the end. I don't know why this happens, but I can imagine that under some circumstances, the system can't mount the disk in
/media/disk/ and creates
disk_, then it can't mount it in
/media/disk_ and creates
disk__ and so forth. The other entry
0BC7-569E I think it's from a SD media card so it's not only for USB drives.
I would like to know what is causing this? Is this expected behavior? or how can I prevent this from happening?
dmesg | tailand seeing if the output shows anything suspicious ?
pmountto prevent this from happening.
