…In a forensic copy of your Linux operating system,…a storage device connected to your machine is not mounted by default.…In case you're not dealing with an evidence drive and…you simply want to mount the drive, here is how you do it.…First, identify the drive and the partition, type sudo fdisk dash L.…Since you're using this command as a privileged user,…the operating system is asking for a password, simply type in the password.…
Now the drive you want to mount is dev/sdc1, in this case.…But it could be varying, depending on how your machine is set up and…what kind of storage device is connected to your machine.…In this case, dev/sdc1 is the partition of my USB drive plugged into my machine.…So to mount it, first of all we need to create a mount point and…a mount point is simply a directory.…So we just need to create a new directory.…By typing mkdir, and then we'll call…the mount point as mount point as mount_point.…
Make sure you have a space between mkdir and then the name of the mount point and…then press enter, do LS to see what's in the directory.…
