I have a Seagate 1Terra Byte drive, and another Seagate 4TerraByte drive. They were both formatted using the PC-BSD disk manager utility in PCBSD10.3 GPT, and freebsd-ufs.
I have not had much use for the TerraByte drive so it’s been sitting there unused, until I wanted to read “Storage Essentials” a book that I bought from Tilted Windmill press some time ago and stored it on the Terrabyte External. Although the book didn’t cost much I did not want to pay another 10 bucks for something I already bought.
Plugged that baby in and zero files, and zero folders where in there. Plug it in a different laptop, and desktop, and same result empty drive. I’m panicking. A whole Terra Byte of data is gone. Plug the 4TB external drive and it says the same thing zero files, I run fsck -y and I get my files back on the 4TB plug in the 1TB and run fsck -y and still zero files. I had an old PCBSD disk, I installed it, and the 1TB is read without a problem under KDE.
I managed to get the file I wanted from PCBSD10.3, but why does it not display my files in TrueOS?
I even tried an ls under /media and also under autofs and they all come up blank. Go back to PCBSD and it comes right up with all my files without a problem the 4TB works in PCBSD also, but for some reason not on TrueOS.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Will Lumina use a “file system marked dirty” in future releases or is this something you are trying to avoid?
