    Hello,
    I have a slave (Backup) harddisk mounted (I think) but I don't know how to acess my folders and files to move them to the primary hard disk.

    I have never had to do this before.

    So far i have done mount /dev/hdb1 /temp
    This hasn't given me access to the files or folders on the drive.

    Can anyone help?

    Well, there are a number of methods to move files from one place to the other. cp, mv, rsync.

    You have not gone into details as to why you are doing that, but I would caution you against simply moving all the files from the backup drive to the main drive.

    Hey,
    Thanks very much for the reply :)

    I am trying to move files from one folder to another, from the slave drive to my master drive.

    I don't know how to get access to the slave drive, I know how to move files, copy files, access folders normally etc. but I have never had to go into a slave drive to get files.

    Thanks
