How to mount an external SSD? (for Backup)

Hello,

Well, I’m in the process of doing my first Backup.
I’ve just bought an external SDD SSD but it does not appear in my other locations.

I’d like it to appear when I use Deja Dup.

How can I make it to appear there?

Is that SSD? You didn’t by an HDD? Not sure if this is the issue as we don’t have enough information:

Yes, SSD because I wanted something for my laptop and my desktop, and to be small, quiet and convenient to travel with.

Your link provided does indeed not show any answer.

I run lsblk and it seems that my external hard-drive is there:

NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 232,9G  0 disk 
└─sda1   8:1    0 232,9G  0 part /
sdb      8:16   0 223,6G  0 disk 
sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

Now it does appear.

I did:
Zorin > Disks > My External Hard Drive was there but not mounted

Then,
I clicked on the icon “Additional partition options” > Format Partition > I checked “Internal disk for use with Linux systems only”.

I waited for around 90 minutes.

After,
Zorin > Files > My external Hard Drive was there, and when I clicked on it, it mounted :slight_smile:
