I bought a 3TB WD Elements external hard drive. Now I want to mount it to my Ubuntu server (which runs inside WinXP/VMware), so that I can move Mysql database to it.
It was auto-mounted under
The first problem is: I cannot change the ownership of any files under
media/Elements. I thought the problem is the file system of
media/Elements is fuseblk.
> sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 10.7 GB, 10737418240 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1305 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00004cdb Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 1244 9990144 83 Linux /dev/sda2 1244 1306 492545 5 Extended /dev/sda5 1244 1306 492544 82 Linux swap / Solaris Note: sector size is 4096 (not 512) Disk /dev/sdc: 3000.6 GB, 3000590401536 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 45600 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 4096 = 65802240 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00052a80 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdc1 1 45601 2930263040 7 HPFS/NTFS
Then I tried to reformat the external drive with gparted, but it ignored to operate on one with 4096 sector size.
sudo gparted ====================== libparted : 2.2 ====================== Device /dev/sdc has a logical sector size of 4096. Not all parts of GNU Parted support this at the moment, and the working code is HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. Ignoring device /dev/sdc with logical sector size of 4096 bytes because gparted only supports a size of 512 bytes.
My final goal is to let Mysql runs on the data stored in this external drive, any solutions?
