Hello Forum.

I have external 2TB USB HDD.

How do I find where all my .iso'd files have gone?

You can use find:

find /run/media/your_username/EXTERNAL_HDD_MOUNTPOINT -iname "*.iso"

replace EXTERNAL_HDD_MOUNTPOINT with the actual path of your external HDD partition.

If your device has been mounted last, use this to find mountpoint:

df -h|tail -n 1|rev|cut -d' ' -f1|rev

[root@localhost /]# umount /dev/sdb1 [root@localhost /]# mount /dev/sdb1 /home/sskitzo/usbHDD [root@localhost /]#

This is what I did.

I mkdir /home/sskitzo/usbHDD first tho.

Then, I can use GUI Files browser to search my external drive.

fuser told me drive was sdb1 after inserting external drive.

Also, I discovered GUI File Browser Magnifying Icon Search query only searches $HOME

So, that is why I mounted HDD to $HOME

You could also search in GUI when it was mounted automatically. Just selected the drive in File browser and did the search!
