Objective: Set up home multi-system (Mac, perhaps Win7, and other Ubuntus) backup capability using Seagate Backup Plus 3T drive connected to Ubuntu Studio 14.04. I would like to simplify the drive name and use the preferred (?) UUID/Labels to do so (to preclude changes in /sdx when I add/remove other external drives and reboot).
Issue: I somehow ended up setting up a mount at sdd1 of /mnt/backupdrive as well as a mount at sdf1 with the label BackupDrive
/dev/sdd1 on /mnt/backupdrive type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sdf1 on /media/will/BackupDrive type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sdf1: LABEL="BackupDrive" UUID="5053-2D7E" TYPE="exfat"
(there is no /dev/sdd1)
The only thing on the drive are standard Seagate files and some empty directories (e.g., no risk in losing data).
I can ls the files in /mnt/backupdrive and see the above files/directories.
It shows up on Nemo as BackupDrive though with no files or directories.
I have no real information on this backup drive yet
Question: How do I correct this to mount by UUID (or Label), so I can continue working my backup solution?
Once fixed, for rebooting purposes should I use;
sudo rm /etc/fstab.pre-uuid
sudo /var/lib/dpkg/info/volumeid.postinst configure
UPDATE: @Xen2050 - fstab has the following;
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--studio--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 #" /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=5cade5c2-bd38-4d2b-aecb-b703ac671bc3 /boot ext2 defaults 0 2 /dev/mapper/ubuntu--studio--vg-swap_1 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0
The UUID for the BackupDrive in blkid and gparted is 5053-2D7E
The UUID 5cade5c2-bd38-4d2b-aecb-b703ac671bc3 is associated with the sda1 boot partition
UPDATE 2: Followed the suggestion of @xen2050 and added the following to fstab;
UUID="5053-2D7E" /media/will/BackupDrive fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
Rebooted, and it complained that there was a mount issue. I skipped the manual configuration during boot.
Here's what mount showed;
/dev/sdc1 on /media/will/BackupDrive1 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="BackupDrive" UUID="5053-2D7E" TYPE="exfat"
No existing files were shown in Nemo, though I copied a backup of the previous contents, and the drive shows them as resident there now. I don't understand why there is a BackupDrive1 showing up under
Will this work or am I still not out of the woods?
