My 2tb Lacie Network Space 2 stopped functioning. I could no longer see the drive via the lacie network assistant
I reset the drive which allowed me to see the drive again, but I couldn't access the content.
The file explorer shows only one folder, which opens to an sub-folder with the same name, which goes on an on.

I have since removed the hard drive and used a sata to usb converter and connected to a computer running ubuntu v14.

When I go to access the drive I get the following error:
Unable to access “2.0 TB Volume”
Error mounting /dev/sdc2 at /media/ubuntu/80b76f8e-19e3-4c86-99c9-d43e6cbeaf4f: Command-line `mount -t "xfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdc2" "/media/ubuntu/80b76f8e-19e3-4c86-99c9-d43e6cbeaf4f"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: No data available

Can anyone help?
Thanks.

what happens if you do in ubuntu
Code:
mkdir /sdc2
mount /dev/sdc2 /sdc2

(Ubuntu should figure out what file system to use for mounting itself)

ps if mount of sdc2 file list the the disk partition table
Code:
fdisk -l /dev/sdc

(assuming sdc is your disk connected via sata/usb

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

Yes, the drive is connected via sata / usb.
I tried mkdir /sdc2 and get the response "cannot create directory '/sdc2': Permission denied"
i then tried the mount command and the response was "only root can do that". I am using ubuntu installed from a pen drive, so maybe i haven't got something installed?

Apologies, I'm not that familiar with linux (and it's been 25 years since i typed a dos command) so I may be doing something stupid.

Any thoughts?

try to use the word "sudo" in front of mkdir and mount (without the quotes)

Or use a root terminal (= a terminal with root privileges, typically you then have to log in with username "root")

thanks. The sudo addition worked.

It is now telling me that /dev/sdc2 doesn't contain a valid partition table.

Does this mean that I will have to reformat the disk? I have data on the disk that I would like to recover.

Thanks again.

/dev/sdc2 is not supposed to have a partition table, as it's a parttion itself.

What exactly was your command? Mount won't complain about partition tables.

maybe my text was not completely clear

what happens if you do in ubuntu
Code:
sudo mkdir /sdc2
sudo mount /dev/sdc2 /sdc2

(Ubuntu should figure out what file system to use for mounting itself)
--edit
if mount is successful what does the command
Code:
ls /dev/sdc2

gives as output
It should list the directory found on the disk, if it does that then you are ready to start copying your data


ps if mount of sdc2 fails then list the the disk partition table
(edit note the the command contains sdc and not sdc2)
Code:
fdisk -l /dev/sdc

(assuming sdc is your disk connected via sata/usb

You could run "sudo lsblk" to list the drives detected by your system and try to match that to you lacie drive.
