I am on another computer, also running Ubuntu 16.04, and need to access my old HDD (a 120Gb SSD) to get some files for backup.
When inserting the USB (the HD as an external drive) the graphic Ubuntu interface shows a folder, but it is only the 511Mb boot-partition. The path is something like
So, perhaps, I need to mount the other 2 partitions to see my files?
With the Disks application, I can see something like
/dev/sdb1= 511Mb. Content Ext2 (v 1.0) mounted at
/dev/sdb2= 120Gb. No mount.. only says "extended"
/dev/sdb5= 120Gb. No mount.. only says "Linux LVM"
PS: all = "Master Boot Record"
Does it make sense to have 120Gb twice, what can I mount, sdb2 or sdb5?
I would really like a command line answer with warnings about any possible risks of running the commands. If I can
apt install a reliable and safe graphical application to help me, that would also be OK.
This isn't a duplicate of the linked post because it doesn't have a direct solution for my context:
- I don't need a clone; I only need some files off the old filesystem.
- I am not using Fedora in 2014, I am using Ubuntu 16.04 in 2017
