Hello sysadmins i have a sata backup plus external hdd. It's Formated with gpt table and ntfs file system. In windows & mac it automatically detech the drivers and working fine but in any linux(RPM | Debian) its having a problem.

I have been installed ntfs-3g package on my fedora 24 system. I'm able to read write. its working fine but when i unmount it it will be unmounted but the hdd led indicator still on and im hear noise & vibration feedback of the hdd.

I tried many commands like (udisks --detach /dev/sdX) (hdparm -y /dev/sdb) & smartctl. I use sg_utils but nothing happend.

Please help me & Thanks You.

Does the system still think the drive is mounted? For example does it show up in an fdisk -l or df command?

@rajput you may have your terminology confused. If it is not mounted, you cannot see the files. If you can see the files, it is mounted. In the terminal, type mount | grep sd and see all of your mounted hard drives. It is possible that it is mounted at a different place than you thought, for example, because of automatic mounting. Please paste the output here.
