You seem to be mixing up the instructions:
Quote# mkdir /dev/sdb2 /mnt/EFI
Where did you get that?

Start again:
sudo fdisk -l

Make sure /dev/sdb is the correct drive.
then as it is a GPT
You may need to install parted
sudo apt install parted
sudo parted /dev/sdb print

post the returned to see if the partitions are as expected
Do not know about Steam but here it goes.
You could try mounting to elsewhere other than your home directory
As a test:
List your drives:
sudo blkid

Locate your UUID for /dev/sdd1

Create directory:
sudo mkdir /media/sdd1

Add line to fstab (replace the xxx with the correct UUID):

UUID=xxx  /media/sdd1 ext4    defaults,noatime     0       2

comment out this line with #
#/dev/sdd1                                   /home/james/Drives/Program\040Drive   ext4   defaults          0 2

mount it:
sudo mount -a

Are you sharing your home directory out?
Then you could create a symbolic link
ln -sf /media/sdd1 /home/james/Drives/Program\040Drive
From what I read about EFI System Partition, that the OS does not automatically mount them.
These are formatted FAT32 so they should be readable.

List partitions (replace x with drive in question):
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdx

The list of partitions on the disk: Look for the EFI system partition in the list.

Mount it (replace x and 1 with the actual partition number:
sudo mkdir /mnt/EFI
sudo mount /dev/sdx1 /mnt/EFI

Change directory to:
cd /mnt/EFI

This should list the files or folders
Surprised that parted is not in the repo for your distro, it is Fedora you are using?
According to this : https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/14/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/s1-disk-storage-parted.html
QuoteBy default, the parted package is included when installing Fedora.

Have you got Gparted installed?
Not familiar with fedora so please forgive my ignorance if this does not work as intended.

The problem appears to be that the HDD (/dev/sdb) appears to be un-partitioned.
Therefore there are no mountable partitions.

You could install parted:

sudo yum install parted -y

Then list the available
sudo fdisk -l

(make sure /dev/sdb is listed)

Then run parted:
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb
Note you will stay in parted shell, shown as (parted)
print out the current HDD configuraion
(parted) print

This should give you the list of partitions (I assume will be none)

To create a standard dos partition table (use gpt if you prefer GPT):

(parted) mklabel msdos
(parted) print

Create one primary partition as ext4
(you still need to create the filesystem, see later)

(parted) mkpart primary ext4 0% 95%
(parted) print

A new partition should be listed
then exit
(parted) q

Now create the filesystem
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1

Note, you can create ntfs instead of ext4 if you like.

After that it will get automounted (probably)
the fdisk -l does list partitions:
QuoteDisk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk label type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x000510f7

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048     1026047      512000   83  Linux
/dev/sda2         1026048   976773119   487873536   8e  Linux LVM

but listed none of them for /dev/sdb
It looks to me that dev/sdb is not partitioned:
QuoteDisk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

Missing the partition data
It looks like your CPU is 64 bit compatible:

     Manufacturer    Dell Inc.
     Model    Dell DXC061
     Total amount of system memory    2.00 GB RAM
     System type    32-bit operating system
     Number of processor cores    2
    64-bit capable    Yes

Why do not try the 64 bit version of the OS?
Not familiar with Lite, but I believe it uses XFCE, so you may have something similar to other users.

Have a look in Power Manager -> Security, see if Lock screen enabled when Screensaver is activated.

Also have a look at Screensaver settings, the lock might be initiated by that

run fsck from a Live-CD/Live-USB
Identify partitions

sudo fdisk -l

Make sure they are unmounted:
Code: [Select]

for n in /dev/sda* ; do umount $n ; done

then run fsck on them (substitute X to suit):

fsck /dev/sdaX

or fix an hard drive related issue called bad blocks you may have (this will take a long time).

fsck -cy /dev/sdaX
fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sdaX
If I remember right, with newer Samba, it will not allow anonymous public share
Try adding to your smb.conf
    map to guest = Bad User
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m
    log level = 1

[your share]
    # This share allows anonymous (guest) access
    # without authentication!
    read only = no
    guest ok = yes
    force user = nobody

Run the command it tells you to
sudo dpkg --configure -a
and it should be able to correct itself.

If it doesn't try running
sudo apt-get install -f
(to fix broken packages) and then try running
sudo dpkg --configure -a
Just make sure you have internet access available so that you can download any dependencies.

Mpv is a videoplayer, so will only display content when playing that.

The information on the bottom of the window will stay on, if you move (and leave) your cursor there.

As Mad Penguin pointed out, it is a good idea, having a mailer running on your system to get notifications (by mail) of impending doom. So you may still want to install postfix.
If you are happy that all is well, please mark the title of your first post on this topic as [SOLVED].
