My Passport
#1
Hello everyone. I am a newbie to linux. I have a Linux Mint OS. I am trying to install a external Hard drive, MY Passport, auto backup, 4TB. Are there any updates to Joe's video from 2017? I have not found much current information.
Any help would be appreciated.

Is it an external USB drive?  If so Mint should mount it right away. Need more info on your situation.

rjs1943,

Thank you for interest. I was able to mount the hard drive and partition it. I followed one of Joe's recent videos on Backing Up. Joe was right, I am finding it a little daunting but I am enjoying the ride.
Thanks again,
