Describe the mount and unmount system calls?..

Answer / sowmya

Hi
mount is the command used to know which devices are
loaded.it means devices like floppy drive,cd drive.if we
give mount command it will display which device is mounted.
unmount is the command used to disable the device.if we
give umount and the path of the device then it will umount
the device.
In windows we wont have this concept.because those are
installed.

Let me know if i am wrong

Describe the mount and unmount system calls?..

Answer / vinay

"mount" is used to avail the file system which we want to
access , "unmount" is used to unavail the file system
in case of removable file system like floppy/cd if don't
execute mount command these file system will not be
available to user and once they mounted if we want to
remove them from respective drives we have to unmount them
then only we can eject them out from respective drives.
eg. $mount /mnt/floppy
$ umount /mnt/floppy
