I have already mounted a hard drive about two months ago and it still shows up in the "Format/Mount a new Hard Drive" section of the cPanel.

Now the problem is I had my server admins add another HD and now two HDs show up in "Format/Mount a new Hard Drive" section

Found Disk: hdb ALL DATA WILL BE LOST


Found Disk: sdb ALL DATA WILL BE LOST
I dont know which one is which. How can I distinguish this?

BTW, what is the output of

It will show you the size of the drives and will give you an idea which one is which...
