Mount a drive from a Fedora Live CD

I had to scan a Windows drive for a Virus and needed to use a Linux Fedora live CD to prevent the virus from migrating to the machine I was using to scan it.

The first thing I needed to do was mount the drive. Click on Activities in the upper left. Open Files to browse the drives. Then click on Show Applications at the bottom of the menu. Click All at the bottom or use the search and look for Disks and Terminal. Disks will show you the location of the drive connected to the motherboard, but it may need to be mounted.

In terminal type “mount /dev/sda1” if “/dev/sda1” is the path to the drive you want to mount. Mine got mounted to the path “run/media/liveuser”.

I hope this helps someone else out there…..
