    Hi,
    sorry for my question....but...in which way i can see if i have a second hd installed?

    In server information i see

    Physcial Diskshda: TEAC CD-ROM CD-224E-N, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
    hda: ATAPI 24X CD-ROM drive, 256kB Cache, UDMA(33)
    sda: asking for cache data failed
    sda: assuming drive cache: write through


    what does it mean?

    I should configure backup on a second HD: what is the righ path?

    Thank you for your help

    Execute the below command on shell :-
    fdisk -l

    it will show you the number of HDD's attached to your server.

    I have this answer:


    Disk /dev/sda: 73.2 GB, 73274490880 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 8908 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 499 4008186 82 Linux swap
    /dev/sda2 * 500 749 2008125 83 Linux
    /dev/sda3 750 1746 8008402+ 83 Linux
    /dev/sda4 1747 8908 57528765 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 1747 3739 16008741 83 Linux

    Yes, you just have one HDD of 73.2 GB. And sda1 to sda7 are the different partitions on it.
