This is a bit of a tangent to the All of my files are gone thread .
The “mount” command shows all of the mounts on a host.
If “my_dir” is my home directory on the host, and “some_other_dir” is someone elses, why doesn’t the following command work?
mount | grep my_dir
And this one does work:
mount | grep some_other_dir
In other words, my mount is not in the list, but everyone elses mount is. My files are in the directory, so the mount is not broken. I can’t believe my files are really local on the system.
