Mount secondary SSD without loosing data?

I put in a seccond ssd on my laptop to use. It’s unfortunately only visible in the grub terminal but not when I’m runing manjaro. Is it possible to make it visible when booted up without loosing data?

Where exactly are you expecting to see it?


Please provide the output of:

fdisk -l



:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

sollicitudin dolor
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.

Instead of like this:

Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

For more information, please see:

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

In the operating system

Obviously. Asking for specifics.

There is only 1 Storage Medium attached to the computer. What do you want to mount?

Just checking: what do you call “grub terminal”? The one you get dropped to if it can’t show the menu at boot? The rescue one? Something else?

That’s what I’m trying to fix I have two storage devices but I can only see one

When booting the computer and press esc for some it’s shift and it’s not the bios

That…that hurts my brain, because it doesn’t make sense. Please be more descriptive, not less, when communicating online. There is no other communication going on between you and who-ever’s reading this, no facial expressions, no skin tone, nothing. So you need to be more expressive when compiling your sentences. Please also see,

However, if the drive doesn’t show up in the UEFI/BIOS I’m leaning toward a hardware problem, which is something we cannot help you with, sadly.
