I’m a recent convert from windows machines to linux. From the first distro I tried I was blown away by how great linux is. But opensuse, while it has taken me a little bit longer to figure a few things out, has by far the best. It even allows me to configure my touchpad so it doesn’t drive me insane.
On to my actual problem. the portable harddrive placed all my files on to when switching from windows mounts but shows up empty.
I know the files are there because they show up when i plug the harddrive into my ps3.
I put the all the files i wanted to save from windows into a folder called portableharddrive (i think) and put that folder on to the portable harddrive.
if i do a directory search by running the drive in terminal this is what i get
enrico@linux-x282:/media/EE2C-16EB> dir -l
ls: cannot access $recycle.bin: Input/output error
drwx------ 13 enrico users 32768 2010-01-09 03:08 port hard drive
d??? ? ? ? ? ? $recycle.bin
I then tried to switch to the directory port hard drive but this is what happened.
enrico@linux-x282:/media/EE2C-16EB> cd port hard drive
bash: cd: port: No such file or directory.
Can anyone help me find my files or do i have to wait untill my girlfriend gets her computer back?
