USB Drives

Wed Nov 18, 2015 4:21 pm

hi there,

Struggling a little to understand how USB's interact with the Pi, well linux in general I guess.

Basically if I insert a usb stick a box pops up asking to open the file manager so I can access stuff that way. How do I unmount this drive though, I have tried looking for sda1, but it's not found. Does this mean that I have been accessing the usb without mounting it, or is it called something else.

Basically I want to remove it from the RPi without having to shut it down every time.

Please help, I can't find any help about already mounted drives

Top right hand corner of the screen there is an icon with an upwards facing arrow with a line under it.
