Re: backup error; mount name change

My ext drive has 1 partition each for my WinXP and Ubuntu files (I am dual boot). Both have the same underscore issue. Gparted shows the mount points of each with the underscore present. The original name without the underscore is absent. I have normal backup operations as long as I use the one containing the underscore.

In that case I would not try to rename the working mount points, but would just leave them alone. You might, however, need to edit /etc/fstab to make it match what gparted is showing.

The only reason to delete the original was if it was occupying significant space which I doubt. Need to review the cli commands to see if there is one for file size. Thanks for all of your input.

You've got the best guys in the business helping you in the Ubuntu forums; OldFred in particular knows the system quite well. And Cheesemill's contribution is a great way to head off troubles...

I've had great luck at both this forum and Ubuntu. There are some great resident linux wizards here.
