Every time i reboot it takes forever

/dev/sdb2 → it is an external disk, pendrive, etc. ???

on it’s not external actually my other external hard drive works just fine.

Has an attribute been changed to create a hidden partition? What about the partition id? What about sfdisk? Look at the ID of the partition?

I can’t understand your partitioning situation, I’m sorry, someone safer can help you.

@haiderkhalid94 It looks logical!

Try and try to see your mistake, so you learn!
+1 :wink:

the ownership of the folder is changed successfully but still empty :sleepy:

Well maybe when you do a fresh install of Endeavour it will correct the issue? What does fdisk -l show? Do you see /dev/sdb2?

Maybe reboot first? Then try it.

yes it does and here is a screenshot of kde partition manager.

for some reason endeavours or kubuntu wiped my partition off :sob: i had 11GB of data on it and now it says it’s only 72MB.

Well i guess it is done than and you’ve probably lost the data? I’m sorry if that is the case. Probably now you will have to recreate that partition as it may not work properly even if you reinstall? It’s your call what ever you decide to do. You’ll have to see.

the partition works now but the problem is i lost all my data. the bright side of all of this is i learned a lot of all of this issues from installing Arch the arch way to the little tiny annoying problems. and the most great thing is i introduced to the endeavours great community so thank so much for both of you @ricklinux and @Resiliencia for your great support.

I’m in the car on the road to nomansland, beyond internet. I’ll look in to this later.

Is there any chance that some file recovery software could be used to scan that partition for lost (as far as the filesytem knows) files? I haven’t had to recover data myself for quite awhile now so my knowledge is rusty, but if I recall correctly, as long as the disk sectors on which the data resides (or resided) isn’t overwritten, it’s still technically there.

I’ve frequently used testdisk https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk with great success in recovering from “oops” situations. It’s in the Arch repos.

Sorry, I forgot about this but I think @2000 might have an answer in this thread.
