To access hidden mounts in Linux, you can follow these steps:
- Open a terminal on your Linux machine.
- Use the lsblk command to list all the available storage devices and their corresponding mount points.
- Identify the hidden mount that you want to access. It may not be directly visible in the output of lsblk, but it will be listed as a device without a mount point.
- Use the mount command to check if the hidden mount is already mounted. If it is, you can skip to step 7.
- If the hidden mount is not listed in the output of the mount command, you need to create a mount point directory where you can access it. Choose a directory name (e.g., "hidden_mount") and create the directory using the mkdir command.
sudo mkdir /mnt/hidden_mount
- Mount the hidden device to the mount point using the mount command. Replace /dev/sdX with the appropriate device identifier for your hidden mount (e.g., /dev/sdb1).
sudo mount /dev/sdX /mnt/hidden_mount
- You can now access the hidden mount by navigating to the mount point directory.
- Perform any required operations on the hidden mount. Remember to use appropriate caution and only modify or access data within your knowledge and permission.
Note: In some cases, hidden mounts may be encrypted or configured in a way that requires additional steps to access them.
