Hi Mark,
I have this printer set up now using USB. I can print, scan etc. without problem.
I also have it set up to print wirelessly so I can print from the workshop but I still have to come in and retrieve the printout  ;) ;)
Thanks again

Yes Mark  ;D ;D
That has solved my problem, thanks.
I can now dump the files/folders on to the external drive.
Thanks again

Thanks Mark,
I have reinstalled all the folders on my new Pep 9  setup that I want and the external drive is clean.
I would like to split the external drive into 2 with one half as ntfs for my Win 10 stuff and the other half as Ext 4 for my Linux stuff. Could you guide me through the process ?? please.
I have the drive split as
/dev/sdb1    ntfs    976.22 GiB    boot
unallocated           886.86 GiB

Sorry for the trouble Mark.  :-[ I have formatted the drive as one single ntfs drive.
I have moved what I want from the Peppermint 7 system I have on my computer onto this external drive.
I have installed Peppermint 9 on my computer and am now in the process of putting the folders etc. from the external drive back to the new Pep 9 setup.
I have managed to set up the 2 printers, a Brother MFC-J591ODW and an Epson Expression Home XP-355, with the WiFi connection.
I have connected to all 3 of my email accounts and they are all working but I was wondering if I should use Thunderbird to keep all the accounts under the same umbrella, so to speak. ??
I have reset my logins for various sites, including this one as you can see.
I would like to keep the computer as free of all my wood working programmes, Inkscape, Gimp etc. and there are loads of sketches/pictures associated with these as well, so I would like to run them from the external drive if I can.
So I really need an external drive split in 2 with ntfs and Ext4 partitions as I would like to keep Win 10 stuff  and Peppermint stuff in separate places. Can you help with that ??
PS I have used those commands and get this

Hi Mark,
I have connected this external drive and used Gparted. The top right hand box lets me select/dev/sda (465.76 GB) or /dev/sdb (1.82 TB).
When I select /dev/sdb/ the screen shows 2 boxes, /dev/sdb1  (928.96GiB) and /dev/sdb2 (924.06 GiB) beneath that is 2 lines saying
Partition       File System                   Size                            Used                 Unused             Flags
/dev/sdb1      ntfs                          938.96 GiB                     93.79 MiB          938.87GiB         boot
/dev/sdb2      ext4                         924.06 GiB                     14.07 GiB          909.36 GiB

My problem is I can only access /dev/sdb1. I can access this using Linux and Win 10.
When I try to access the ext4 formatted /dev/sdb2 I get an error message. 'You don't have permission to access this folder ?'
When I use the 'Properties'  > Permissions it has the owner as 'Root' and at the bottom says 'You are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions'

Can you tell me where I have went wrong and help me rectify it ?? please.

PS Can I apply to be a Beta tester for the next Peppermint ?? I seem to be the original 'Murphy' (as in 'Murphy's Law) :-[ :-[

Sorry about the confusion Mark. It was just that the warranty mentioned that only manufacturing faults would be looked at IF the drive throws a wobbly.

HI Mark,
I was reading through the folders on the drive and the Registration folder had a copy of the warranty in it and it was on the warranty it said 'did not cover accident, misuse etc', which, knowing me, was the most likely thing to happen.
I hope to get to this drive later today and get it up and running using this Linux machine as the Win 10 machine has only 1 working USB port and I don't like using the touchpad to enter commands etc.

Thanks Mark,
Will have a go at setting 2 partitions as ntfs and plugging the drive into Peppermint machine and changing 1 to Ext 4.

Had a look at the Registration and guarantee and it looks pointless, I think I need to prove it is a MANUFACTURING fault before they will look at it.

Thanks Mark,
I have had a look and I have used it before (some time ago).
I will look further tomorrow evening.

I have had a look at the Seagate drive and in the directory there are folders to use the MAC OS and the Win OS also a folder for registration.
My question is, does this drive need to be registered ?? if not can I use my Win 10 computer to automagically set up the drive with the ntfs system and then split it in two and format the other half as Ext 4. Orhave I looked at this from the wrong direction ??

When I open the drive in Gparted it opens as /dev/sdb1/ with a ntfs file system and a size of 1.82TiB and an Unallocated space of 2.64 MiB

I am becoming quite confused here so I will await your recommendations.

Thanks again Mark,
You seem to know what I want before I do ;)
I was going to use it as a "storage" drive to save docs/pics/etc but I like your suggestion of partition in half so it can be used with a Windows PC.
Is there a 'Sticky' somewhere that explains how to format the external drive with 2 file systems ?? or do you have time to explain it here ??
Thanks again
Don W

Thanks Mark,
My 2TB drive arrived today.
I don't really need the speed as I am going to use it only as a backup.
I don't think there is a USB 3.0 port on this machine, is there any way I can check ??
It keeps saying that Windows is easy to install ?? is it just as easy to format it as a Linux drive ??

Thanks Mark,
I will report back when I have this up and running.
Could I install Pep 9 on this drive ?, could I then transfer what I want from this computer to the Pep 9 drive ??, could I then install Pep 9 on this computer ???, and can I then bring back the stuff I saved on the drive and use it on the Pep 9 computer.
In essence, I want to upgrade my computer to Pep 9 and I want to install an HD backup 'just in case'. I seem to have loads of unused/unwanted rubbish clogging the system and want it slimmed down (dramatically), is this the way to do it ??

take care
Don W

Hi All,
I am thinking of purchasing a Seagate 1TB hard drive to be used as a backup.
Will this be ok to use on my Linux system.
