Edit: Since the problem only occurs when the NFS server goes down AFTER the share has already been successfully mounted, the previous answer does not help. My only suggestion now is to use autofs to mount the NFS shares on-demand, instead of mounting them on boot. This way, the system will only attempt to mount the NFS shares when you try to access them, ...

Right, I just noticed in your dmesg output that the kernel found a Unixware slice: [ 362.320059] sda1: <unixware: sda5 > The first (and only) slice in sda1 is available at sda5. Slices are much like volumes in an Extended Partition. Try mounting it: mount -t sysv /dev/sda5 /mnt/tmp As for fsck: There’s simply none available for SysV FS, as ...

You can make linux binaries executable with root permissions by setting the setuid attribute on the executable that you need to call. You may also want to create a group which only has access to mount things (unless it's a single install, then you can just use your user group). So something like the following in a root shell: # groupadd mounters # usermod ...

Without seeing a sample of your fstab, not too clear how your system is setup. But I believe you can use the user option in the fstab entry something like this as explained here; empahsis is mine on the option relevant to your question: user/nouser - Permit any user to mount the filesystem. (This automatically implies noexec, nosuid,nodev unless ...

I personally use a piece of software such as PowerISO or MagicISO, they are designed for this sort of thing. WinZip is an archive/unarchive utility such as the likes of 7-Zip and WinRar. They can open iso's as they are a form of archive. Hope this helps.

Yes, this can be done. All you need to do is to record the UUID of the external device(s) and make a few adjustments to your system. One way of going about it is nicely described HERE Replicating the steps here seems pointless as we don't know anything about the number of disks and in what way you plan to use them, or what file-systems are in use.

@Techie007 thank you so much ! It worked very well ! So, here is my solution : I went on http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec_Step_By_Step#Run_PhotoRec_executable, downloaded the software PhotoRec, followed the steps (simple, really well explained on the wiki) ! Now, I'm recovering everything. It's written 40 hours left, but for the moment, I already ...

Don't mount it automatically via fstab, use a crontab instead: Set your fstab to not mount the share automatically //servername/sharename /media/windowsshare cifs noauto 0 0 You can have various other options there, presumably you already do. The important part is to add the noauto which ensures that noauto do not mount when "mount -a" is ...
