    hello friends

    I have a backup disk, but I can not see it with: "df -h"

    df -h , show this:

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 1.8T 661G 1.1T 39% /
    tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda1 488M 165M 298M 36% /boot
    /dev/sda3 16G 411M 15G 3% /tmp

    cat /etc/fstab , show this:

    UUID=cd67453e-5625-42ee-bc2c-e12e2a8dd953 / ext4 usrjquota=quota.user,jqfmt=vfsv0 1 1
    UUID=207327a2-c801-4ac6-8471-7d70f57a95cc /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
    UUID=5efd52f9-a2a3-487b-ad1c-bb7ec5cd68b9 /tmp ext4 defaults 1 2
    UUID=7e981fa6-c77f-4ccf-a037-398cad817b6d swap swap defaults 0 0
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    The backup disk, works correctly, since I can store information inside the disk
    How can you do, to display the BACKUP disk, when using "df -h"?

    Similary to :

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 886G 202G 639G 24% /
    tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sdb1 917G 415G 457G 48% /backup
    /dev/sda1 488M 165M 299M 36% /boot
    /dev/sda3 16G 1.3G 14G 9% /tmp

    I don't see anything configured for /backup on this system. Could you check with your provider/data center to verify how the additional drive was mounted?

    try this. from the promot issue
    sfdisk -l
    this will display your disks.
    based on the df you showed earlier there is a /dev/sda. I would expect to see something like maybe /dev/sdb. Post the output of the sfdisk -l command
