Got a autofs packet...Drive error!

Hi

Last week I bought a Seagate backup plus portable (5000 GB) Harddrive for my router and my hard drive to the router no longer correct running since 3 days!

I can no longer see Windows 10 the hard drive as a network drive.

The harddisk is formatted as NTFS

This error comes in the LOG:

2017-01-23T13:40:55+01:00 crit mountd[5730]: Got a autofs packet
2017-01-23T13:40:55+01:00 crit mountd[5730]: kernel is requesting a mount -> sdb2
2017-01-23T13:40:55+01:00 crit mountd[5730]: request for invalid path /tmp/run/mountd/sdb2
2017-01-23T13:40:55+01:00 crit mountd[5730]: failed to mount sdb2

Am not a Linux kernel guru, but what does it mean?

Thnaks

It will work again as it should!

You don`t write some details about youre mount methode and what you tried to fix it.

Try you unmount and again mount ? NTFS disks have some specific properties by mounting – serch in forum.
