Unable to find hdd

I am a windows 10 user and i installed garuda today morning. My laptop has 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. I installed the OS in SSD and everything s quite smooth. However i cant seem to find my HDD in file manager. I tried to mount the HDD from kde partition manager but the system crashes the moment i try to do so. Please help!

In terminal, post in and output as text.

sudo blkid


and post

inxi -Fxxxza

Even if you personally think it is unnecessary.

You did not read :slight_smile:

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Please post output

cat /etc/fstab



Garuda is installed in SSD while my HDD is empty. However my HDD only has has a "lost+found" folder which is locked. I cannot create any foler or file in my HDD nor can i delete the "lost+found" folder

Create new partition table for HDD with gparted. It will "clean" your disk

Do not post multiple topics for same problem.

Search in forum/WWW arch wiki about "chown"

man chown

Teaching someone how to use, customise, and script Linux from first principles is a little outside the scope of a web forum.


Use gnome disk utility to mount your hdd with read/write permission.
