Thread: bringing files from a windows partition to the linux partiton

  1. #1

    bringing files from a windows partition to the linux partiton

    can anyone instruct me as to how to get a folder from my old hard drive(windows ME) and put it onto the new hardrive (redhat/XP) onto the linux partition? i have them both hooked up, i just need to figure out how to swap the files over.

    Create a mount point for the other hard drive. You must be root.

    mkdir /mnt/whatever name you want

    Then mount the drive. You need to know what device it is and the file system type. Example for a hard drive (secondary master = hdc) with a vfat partition mounted under /mnt/windows

    mount -t vfat /dev/hdc /mnt/windows

    Then you can just open the /mnt/windows folder in the file manager and copy the files you want to your linux drive. After you are through copying the files you can unmount the drive with: umount /mnt/windows

    You cannot be in the dir that you are trying to umount. In other words head to the top level dir, and then proceed to umount.

    Ex.) /mnt/windows

    Need to be in /mnt to umount /mnt/windows or in any other dir as long as your not in /mnt/windows

    If all else fails, try logging out and logging back in. I've found that to work often in situations like that.
