Remounting after 'lazy' unmount help
I am, at present fairly new to Linux.
I am using an external Sata hard drive to do data analysis on a Linux system. I have mounted and unmounted the drive several times using the commands
sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/mf
However, after running some programs (and ctl+C sometimes) I was unable to unmount the drive. After looking around on forums, I attempted the command
sudo umount /mnt/mf
Which successfully removed the drive (I could tell by the fact the drive was absent when I typed the command 'df'
sudo umount -l /mnt/mf
I then powered down the drive and removed it from the computer. I just attempted to re-mount the drive using the usual means described above. However, the prompt says that 'special device /dev/sdc1 does not exist'.
typing dir in the directory /dev reveals that sdc1 is indeed, not present.
Does the drive have a new name? if so how do I tell? Is there a quick fix for this? I'm assuming it is because of the 'lazy' unmounting that I did at the last unmount.
