  2. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to mount 64GB micro SDXC card (Ubuntu 18.04)

    in 18.04 exFAT support is an addon. Have you loaded those tools? 20.04 has exFAT support included.

    [ubuntu] Re: Backing Up To Portable Hard Drive?

    Does the external HD have NTFS as the file system? if so, then the options are limited. Start by formatting to ext4.

    Re: Bash script sequencing

    "sh" isn't bash. It is Borne Shell. Different shells have different capabilities.

  13. Re: Is it possible to put /var/cache/apt/archives on a usb flashdrive?

    Use static IPs for servers and desktops.
    DHCP with dynamic IPs are fine for laptops and clients that move in and out of the network.

    There's a long-time backup script, rbackup or rsnapshot, based on rsync with hardlinking for versioning. There are a few popular GUIs that work in a similar way. Back-In-Time is fine for end-user...
