Re: How To Change USB Memory Device Back to Removable
After coming to the understanding that the sensitive data on the Lexar usb drive could be copied to somewhere else, I booted into LiveUSB mode. There the Lexar drive partition was removed and re-installed as ext3. It was also given a new Label.
Upon re-booting into (what should be the correct word here?) ordinary OS (Main, Real, non-LiveUSB?), and using nano, I commented out the uuid of the Lexar device, in /etc/fstab. Saved and exited. Then using a terminal I entered superuser mode (sudo su). Changed directory to root ( / ) and removed the entry LEXAR.
I re-booted as a safety measure to insure that the changes didn't affect the OS or / or the removable devices otherwise and find that the OS isn't issuing a splash screen error or warning.
I plugged the Lexar back into a usb port. Opened a terminal and looked around the file system. At /media there is an entry LEXAR. I believe the devices' firmware is controlling that. But as there was no entry for LEXAR in root ( / ), I believe things are back to normal.
Running both fsck and dpgk from the GRUB Recovery does hang at /sda5, which is my /home partition. I'll post about that when I get it fixed.
UBUNTU? YES, safety in numbers.
