@gsan it wont be possible to remote connect to a computer running a live linux cd from outside of your network.
But here are the commands needed that should allow you access to the usb drive.
Open a terminal window. Either type Ctrl and Alt and T, or use the menu to launch lxterminal, it should be in system tools.
Type the following command and then reply back with the results:
That command lists attached disks, it should give back something like this:
That is to get elevated access, it should respond back mentioning “root”
If it asks for a password, press enter
If it says it is not possible, try the following command;
You will then be prompted to make a password on the system, type something easy to remember
Assuming above has been successful, do following:
type this command;
sudo mkdir -p /media/naim
Which means, using elevated access, make a new directory called naim inside media. The -p is in case media directory doesn’t exist, it will make that as well.
After this, we are going to attempt to mount the attached Naim hard drive, but I need to see the results of lsblk first to work out the device id.
If you can recognise the device yourself, then go ahead with attempting to mount it using the next command. The size column should help you, plus the type will be “part” i.e. partitiion, and the mountpoint should be blank.
Your primary computer harddrive is likely to be sda with partitions sda1, sda2 etc.
I would expect the usd drive to be sdb. You can always type lsblk with the usb drive disconnected, then connect it again and repeat lsblk, and your drive will be whatever wasn’t listed the first time round. That’s a surefire way of getting it right.
The command needed to mount the drive will therefore be something like:
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/naim
where sdb1 is the device id of the usb hard disk, replace sdb1 with the correct value determined.
After all that, the hard disk should be accessible as /media/naim
So if you then type this command you should start to see the content of the usb hard drive.
ls -ltr /media/naim
Now just open up file explorer (I think it’s nemo in lubuntu, might be nautilus) and delete whatever you need to delete.
