I recently looked in the Disk Management tool, and I noticed a (virtual) disk that I didn’t recognize. The volume’s name is “PortableBaseLayer.”
I also noticed it while using the manage-bde -status command. It concerned me, as my whole disk is supposed to be encrypted by BitLocker. Please see the images below.
Can anyone tell me anything about this?
I tried using GNOME boxes in my system. But the only problem is that I don’t have much space in my primary disk which is a 120GB SSD and GNOME boxes images are taking up the SSD space. But I have a secondary disk which is a 1TB HDD disk. Is there any way to configure GNOME boxes so that I can install my images to the secondary disk?
Full disclosure, I don’t really know what I’m doing here, I just really hate Windows 10 and am trying to use Ubuntu instead. If this question has been already asked I apologize, I’ve been reading many other questions and either couldn’t understand them or couldn’t even tell if our problems were the same.
I just got a brand new Dell laptop with Windows 10 as the default operating system. I bought a SanDisk 64 GB USB drive and followed the HowToGeek instructions for setting up the partition and booting directly from the USB drive. I thought I was successful since my computer now automatically boots from the USB and runs Ubuntu. However, after running Ubuntu and trying to install additional programs, I checked the disk space and it only lists me as having 4.1 GB of space, with only 136 MB of space available. Since even the USB has 64 GB of space, this seems very wrong, and I thought that the whole point of partitioning the hard drive was to provide storage anyway. What is going on here, and how do I fix this?
I copied a bit of data on my LVM based RAID1 (not hardware RAID) with 2× 10Tb hard drives:
/dev/mapper/users-users 9.1T 1.9G 8.6T 1% /home
and now it’s killing my I/O to the point where my mouse, keyboard, video are blocked/unblocked/blocked/unblocked…
I’m thinking that maybe something is wrong at the hardware level but wondering what that could be. Wondering what to test first to try to make a better diagnostic.
I have another 2 drives in the same drive array but they are not setup in RAID mode.
Looking at the output of
iotop it tells me that there is about 2Mb/s written to disk, a pretty much permanent write… When I look at the Disk LED, I can see them come up and out over and over again and can hear the seeking heads too.
Trying to watch a video, it fails really bad. Choppy would not even be the word here. It’s like one image every other second if even that much. So a really big I/O killer for the entire computer.
Wondering whether someone would have encountered such a problem before and what can be done to fix it if possible (I certainly hope it is possible!)
My motherboard is a Supermicro X11DPH-T and I also got a case from Supermicro the 745BAC-R1K28B2 4U Full Tower Chassis. I’m running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The server is new and so is the install (i.e. not an upgrade from 16.04 or who knows what…)
Would there be a way to know whether a specific hard drive or some other hardware device is causing the trouble?
I have just switched to Linux Ubuntu and I have some games on cd and I am having trouble installing call of duty 2 and i was wondering how i do it (it has multiple disks)
How to find (as grouped) the directory who is taking all the disk spaces?
# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/vda1 60G 54G 6.4G 90% / devtmpfs 1.4G 0 1.4G 0% /dev tmpfs 1.4G 0 1.4G 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 1.4G 161M 1.3G 12% /run tmpfs 1.4G 0 1.4G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 285M 0 285M 0% /run/user/0
It does not help to see /dev/vda1 is 90%, how to check which directories having the largest disk reserve?
/var/log/httpd 20GB /var/log/pluto 10GB /var/log/syslog 5GB /var/log/tcpdump 1GB /... restGB
I want to modify the partitions of my 1TB disk. The disk is shared with Windows . Does it is possible to extend one partition? Which would be the best to augment? What are my options?
This is how it is now:
sda1 928 NTFS sda3 8 swap (linux) sda4 24 Ext4 sda5 20 Ext4 sda2 19 NTFS
GNOME-disks partition map
Long time ago i was trying to fix a corrupted sd card, or usb, i don’t remember. After some failed attemps, i give up, but the disk keeps showing up with fdisk -l, gparted, and disks. How can i delete this ghost disk?
This is the ghost disk:
Disk /dev/sdb: 22,4 GiB, 24015495168 bytes, 46905264 sectors Disk model: SanDisk SSD U100 Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: gpt Disk identifier: BC49F78D-AD2F-4BEA-8731-80F808B9120D
so the other day I unplugged my PC running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (it was completely shut down when I plugged it out), and a week later, I plugged it back in and since then I can’t boot it with that issue:
"error: attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0'" "Entering rescue mode..." "grub rescue>"
The PC has a single 120GB SSD installed, single partition, and I can’t really remember what partition type it is.
PC: Core2Quad Q8200 2.33GHz 6GB DDR2 RAM Asus P5K-SE motherboard ((some low spec AMD gpu with 1GB of memory)) Crucial 120GB SSD
Just don’t tell me I have to reinstall Ubuntu, for the 3rd time now.
EDIT: turns out it was a faulty… SATA cable.
I am using Ubuntu 19.04 and due to gaming I want to install Windows 10 in a separate hard disk drive.
I have searched a lot and I haven’t managed to find clear instructions, especially in a build that has already Ubuntu installed. Most guides I found made it clear that you should install Windows 10 first.
So how can I install Windows 10 in a second hard disk drive in a manner that doesn’t conflict with my Ubuntu installation, as this is the one I am using all day except from gaming?
Please don’t link the other questions in here about this same issue because obviously they weren’t helpful.
