Why? Why?? > I can't answer that, but I know what you mean about the anxiety. I always run df -h and note my partitions from there. If you have unmounted partitions that must be included, try mounting them as /mnt/tmp1, /mnt/tmp2 etc., so that you can identify them. Remember that 'fdisk -l' will list your partitions and the type, so you can easily see whether you have accounted for all of them. HTH Anne
