I have just bought an ASUS EEEPC 701SDX netbook which has Lunix. I have a portable storage disk which I use on my desktop computer with Windows XP to download files, photos etc. My question is how can I send data from the netbook to the disk?
On my desktop computer I click on "Send" and my portable drive "G" appears. I have searched but cannot find anything equivalent on the netbook.
Help please!!

Hi, first of all I am very technical challenged so don't understand "pc talk".
The portable drive is a Maxtor Basics Portable Storage which connects to the two USBs. The data loads to the EEEPC okay, but I want to know how I can load data back onto the drive.
All I can find about the Lunix installation is Custom Asus Linus Based Operating System.
Hope this information helps a bit.

I can see my data on the portable storage when I plug it into the USB. My question is, how do I add more data from my EEEPC to my portable storage. With windows I right click and send to Drive G (portable storage).
The portable storage comes up as Drive D on the EEEPC but how do I send data from it to the portable storage. Hope that makes sense.

I don't have an EEE PC, so I am working blind.

What you will probably need to do is simply copy the files like you would from one directory to the other.

What desktop are you using, Gnome or KDE? If that is Greek to you, then look at the top or bottom of the screen for something that looks like the Windows "Start" button and then look for something like the file explorer in Windows. From there can you copy files or directories to the external drive?

You said "I can see my data on the portable storage". How? Which tool are you using. What do you see in the Window's title bar?
