  • backup drive cannot be mounted after upgrade from vb 2.3 to 2.4

    hi there


    I just upgraded from vb 2.3 to 2.4. I cannot restore my backup drive, here is the log:
    09/05/2017 16:40:43 - USB disk added [Disk /dev/sdb: 1.8 TiB, 2000398934016 bytes, 3907029168 sectors] 09/05/2017 16:41:07 - Restore (Add missing files) from USB drive to /storage... Failed to open $MFT/$BITMAP: No such file or directory Failed to load $MFT: No such file or directory Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory 09/05/2017 16:41:07 - Mount of USB drive /dev/sdb1 failed; cannot do Restore. so it seems that my drive is not being mounted. This is what fdisk -l shows with my backup drive connected: [[email protected] ~]# fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 1.8 TiB, 2000398934016 bytes, 3907029168 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 Disklabel type: gpt Disk identifier: 836F6059-AC64-472A-A4FA-609CE29C019F Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 4095 2048 1M BIOS boot /dev/sda2 4096 618495 614400 300M Linux filesystem /dev/sda3 618496 749567 131072 64M Linux swap /dev/sda4 749568 63664127 62914560 30G Linux filesystem /dev/sda5 63664128 3907029134 3843365007 1.8T Linux LVM Disk /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_storage: 1.8 TiB, 1967799664640 bytes, 3843358720 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 Disk /dev/sdb: 1.8 TiB, 2000398934016 bytes, 3907029168 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 Disklabel type: gpt Disk identifier: F39EF794-B574-4F60-AD8E-1D06EB8173AE Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sdb1 2048 3907029134 3907027087 1.8T Linux LVM Any help would be very much appreciated. All my music is on that drive!

    Did you go through all the follow up steps in the 2.4 setup to expand storage, etc.

    Seems like it's not finding the storage space on the vortexbox itself. (failed to mount /dev/sdb1)

        At this point, I'd probably do a new install of VB2.4. Somehow it's not seeing your VB storage.

          Thanks for your replies. I already installed it twice and that didn`t solve the problem. It seems rather to be a issue with my usb backup drive itself . Do you or does somebody else know how to mount and restore the external drive manually?

            You could attach the backup USB drive to a Wndows PC and perform a 'chkdsk' check with the fix errors option flag. I have, in the past, found that this works

              When the OP connects the backup USB drive to a windows PC or Mac, can you see your files, etc. The chkdsk idea is good.
