If you have any doubts you can watch the video above or you can ask questions in Discord I have given my Twitter profile link so you can ask there. ????????

The /dev Directory

The /dev directory is a special directory in Unix-like operating systems, including Linux. It stands for “device” and contains device files that represent and provide access to various hardware devices and virtual devices in the system.

cd /dev
ls -la 

Viewing Partition

At times, you may want to view the partitions on your Linux system to see which ones you have and how much capacity is available in each. You can do this by using the fdisk utility. Using the -l switch with fdisk lists all the partitions of all the drives

fdisk -l 

List Block Device

The Linux command lsblk, short for list block, lists some basic information about each block device listed in /dev.


Mounting and Unmounting

Mounting and unmounting are the processes of attaching and detaching filesystems to a directory in Linux. This allows you to access the contents of the filesystem and work with its files and directories. Here’s an overview of how to mount and unmount filesystems in Linux

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mydrive
umount /mnt/mydrive

Getting Information on Mounted disk

We can use the df command to get information like the metadata about the mounted disk.


Checking for errors in /mnt

fsck command helps to check errors in file system and helps to solve the error.
