Mounted SATA drive can be navigated in terminal, but no folders show up in ES File Explorer


(Rob F) #1

I have a 2.5" SATA drive connected to my board. I mounted the drive with the following commands in terminal:

su mkdir /mnt/sata mount -t ext4 /dev/sda5 /mnt/sata

I can navigate the folders in terminal and see the files, but if I open ES File Explorer, I see the /mnt/sata folder, but is completely empty. Likewise, KODI won’t open the /mnt/sata folder either.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! McFrisch

not sure why the carriage returns were removed from the command lines… but it was…

  • su

  • mkdir /mnt/sata

  • mount -t ext4 /dev/sda5 /mnt/sata
