Mounting and formatting USB drives on Linux are not the easiest things to do. Especially if you are on a console only operating system, like Raspbian Lite.
Today, I’ll show you how to manage this on your Raspberry Pi, whether in terminal or graphic mode. It’s a 3 steps process :
– Identify the device properties (file system, location, partitions)
– If needed, format the drive in a compatible file system
– Mount the drive with the desktop or a command line
