How can I mount a backup HDD that is unmounted?

Answer to the question

Your file manager may provide such a feature by clicking the appropriate HDD icon. Within the terminal you may use the `mount` command.

Your device files or organized within /dev filesystem. For parallel attached drives /dev/hdXY or serial ones /dev/sdXY. Where X is your drive enumerated from a-z and Y your partition number.

For example mount the first serial attached HDDs partition 1 do the following:

mkdir /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
