Unable to mount the volume 'Seagate Backup Plus Drive'.

Post by kenw » Thu Jan 24, 2019 11:49 am

I am trying to back up using a 'Seagate Backup Plus Drive'.
When I attach it I get the following message:-

Cannot mount volume
Unable to mount the volume 'Seagate Backup Plus Drive'.
Details
Mount: illegal option-m usage: mount [-t fstype] [-o option s] target_fs mount_-point

I am still using GhostBSD 11.1
Can anybody tell me what I need to do to make this work?

Me too. In fact, no volumes are mounted on my system, including the internal hard drives other than the one Ghost is on. I was going to post on this but you already did so I'll just check this thread.

What is the file system you try to mount?
