I'm on Ubuntu MATE trying to get write access to an OSX hard drive to backup a buddy's data on his MBP that bit the dust when the battery exploded in the computer. I've seen the thread over here:
That said to use this to remount:
sudo mount -t hfsplus -o remount,force,rw /dev/sdx# /mount/point
My question, is the sdx# where you tell Linux which HDD to remount? If so how do you find that number? I'm a real noobie when it comes to Linux and I'm trying to pick it up as I go, I just don't want to mess his stuff up so figured I'd better ask first.
- Note: The HDD is still good. I can see all his files and open them in sudo, but can't copy/paste which is why I need write access to back it up.
