I need to mount the old hard drive on my server (it crashed and the datacenter put on a new one), but I can not get it to work. I have tried:

mount /dev/hdc2 /mnt/old/
mount ext3 /dev/hdc2 /mnt/old/

Nothing seems to work.

That's unusual. I think I read somewhere that some systems use a different command, but I don't remember what it was. All that command was for is to give you a list of partitions.

Does your server provider charge you if you ask them to mount the drive?

Maybe this link will help. It's where I first started figuring out how to do partitioning and mounting.

From what I understand, the only way
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc2 /mnt/old
won't work is if either the partition is not hdc2, (the 2nd primary partition), or the directory is not /mnt/old. That line is saying to mount the directory "mnt/old" to the 2nd primary partition.

My guess is it's probably not the correct directory name.

Does WHM tell you there is a drive to be mounted?
