    Hello,

    Recently I reinstall my OS with suggest from cpanel. I have 2 HDD, 1 for cpanel (dev/sda) and 1 for cpanel accounts backup (dev/sdb).
    And then I install centos 7 but in partition I don't create the partition of /dev/sdb because the partition is my old cpanel backup accounts.
    After reinstall I have a problem with mount /backup in /dev/sdb. When I mount, I have the message like this
    "mount: /dev/sdb is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: unknown filesystem type '(null)'"

    I want to mount without format my second HDD (dev/sdb) because I want to restore my backup accounts. Can you help me, please?

    Hello,

    I recommend reaching out to your data center or hosting provider for help with mounting the additional drive. It's something you'd want to use caution when doing, as it contains backup data.

    Thank you.
