hurray, my brain kicked back into comprehension mode... i remembered to boot into a liveUSB session... edited out the offending line in my fstab and rebooted...  now to remind myself how to delete or change the need for a log in password... apparently, my install doesn't recollect the last password I've used...

Looks like the file system is corrupt, can you attach it to a Windows PC and run a file system check ?
(IMHO it's always best to let Windows fix Windows file systems)

perhaps... but while doing my latest complete reinstall, i reformatted the dying 350 GB platter hard drive as ext4... which I know our Win10 machines will not see...

As it stands right now, this install of peppermint doesn't see it either...

Curiously, when i open the disks utility... [Menu > Preferences > Disks] I can see the unreadable drive, but the utility does see the other readable drive in the dual external USB drive...
and it's once again showing me the two USB 2.0 CF   cardreaders.... which it never showed me previously :-\

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

So, after allowing Win10 to do a file system check... these are the results... Win10 found no errors on the 500GB drive btw... could not detect the 350 gb drive

Try booting to a LiveUSB, then without doing anything that might mount sdd1, just open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo fsck /dev/sdd1
(if the 320GB drive is indeed sdd1)

But if you were getting filesystem errors in both Windows and Linux, I'd assume the drive is damaged.

Win10 could not see the 320 GB disk... as it's currently formatted EXT4... if memory serves, we'd already pronounced this disk dead.

But this topic got revived after trying to change the properties of the txt files on the 500GB disk,  which the Peppermint 8 disk utility currently can't see at all while in liveUSB mode. Guessing it only can access the first drive in the BlacX USB removable drive...

Hi Spence, I have just across your post.

Model: JMicron Tech (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdc: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      1049kB  1000GB  1000GB  primary

This is my external 1TB 3.5" HDD in a CIT (USB3) box I use as my back up, fully encrypted via the Gnome-Disk_Utility tool. I have no problem using this arrangement. A good friend of mine bought an alleged USB 6TB box that had a USB2 connector that is very painfully slow, by comparsion.

I've seem to have achieved better result with a ext formatted HDD and encrypted, than his purpose bought external drive...? Horses, water, drink.

Code: [Select]
sudo fsck /dev/sdd1
(if the 320GB drive is indeed sdd1)

Spent the greater part of two hours allowing the command above to delete, fix, repair & whatever else it does to the drive, which became sde1 during liveUSB. How many hundreds of thousands of inodes does a 320 gb disk hold anyway? At some point beyond the 300,000 inode count I elected to abort and reboot, both drives appeared with no problem in Peppermint 8. Then I elected to do a full NTFS format of the drive. This morning's first boot both drives appear with no problem

But if you were getting filesystem errors in both Windows and Linux, I'd assume the drive is damaged.

I will proceed as if it is failing, thus only using it for extended redundant storage....

Appreciate your perspective cavy both my drives in this BlacX external drive are salvaged from other computers which originally shipped with some form of Windows. I initially hard formatted them as NTFS while I was still dual booting between Peppermint and Winblows. My other half was using the external USB as back up as well and he uses Win10 now, so interoperability was key.  Now that interoperability with MS products is no longer necessary, I may flip this newly prepped drive to EXT4 and see what happens.
