Copy Files from Ntfs Drive to Fat 32 External Drive

Post by Krilb » 10 Nov 2009, 11:05

When I run fsarchiver I can now see both the c drive from the Windows installation and the external hard drive. I am also able to successfully mount the c drive and access it either with linux commands or with Midnight Commander.

I have used the command to mount the Fat 32 external hard driv: mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1/mnt/backup. There was no error message so I assume it has been mounted.

1. What is the command to see the files on the external drive?
2. What is the command to copy from the internal drive to the external hard drive?

Help would be much appreciated.
