I am running ubuntu 14.04.
I attempted to boot my computer and I received the following error:
General error mounting filesystems. A maintenance shell will now be started. CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and reboot the system
Since the computer won't boot, I need to transfer for files. I can access the files from the command line but I can't teansfer any files.
I tried to mount the usb drive but the 'mount' is not installed.
I then used
rsync -avh /dev/sdb /media/usb
rsync: mknod "/media/usb" failed: Read-only file system (30)
I am not tied to this method. I just need to transfer my files.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
