Join Jungwoo Ryoo for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding mounting, part of Learning Computer Forensics.
…Mounting is a concept related to partitioning.…Partitioning is one of the topics we have investigated in another video.…Mounting is the process of making a partition visible to an operating system.…You create a partition, and to make the partition visible to the operating…system and eventually visible to an end user, you have to do the mounting.…Especially on a Linux operating system.…Un-mounting is the opposite of mounting and it makes…the partition invisible to the operating system and eventually, to the end user.…
To understand mounting, you have to understand the concept of a mount point,…and mount point is simply a directory where a partition is made visible.…After mounting is done, we'll do a quick demo of mounting here.…We'll start it by plugging a USB drive into our machine.…As soon as you plug in your USB drive,…you will see this window pop up, and what this means is that your…operating system picked up your USB drive just plugged in to your machine.…This is probably the last thing you want in your computer forensics…
