Didn't know where to put this but here is where I am.
I have an 80GB external hard drive that I decided to use to store some larger files. It was formatted in Fat 32 and the files I need to store on it were larger than 4GB so I needed to re format it. I reformatted it to NTFS as the files were windows programs.
I went to manage disk partitions and re formatted it. Now it is not recognized by PCLOS or Windows.
What simple thing did I forget to do. I am sure I will feel stupid after someone tells me. That's ok though if if I fix it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
My LXDE has an NTFS configuration tool in the menu,
but I've never had to use it. Might help. Partitions I've
formatted with NTFS were seen right away. Never ask
for root permissions either going back and forth.
Maybe need to reboot between deleting the FAT 32 and going to
NTFS, who knows. Fussy old Linux maybe. What does Testdisk
say is where I'd go then.
