      Hi and thanks...
      But I do not understand why I am getting all of these e-mails explaining the NTB workings on a MAC OS system.

      I am running Ubuntu 10.04, and the problem is I am unable to extract anything from my USB Drive, a seagate 160 GB drive. The system says it does not recognize the drive??? It did work ok on ubuntu 9.10, but then it closed down??

      I reloaded Ubuntu 9.10 but then it would not work again??

      Any ideas?

      except for I don't recall if these (find that) I listed work on a path
      with space(s) [Linux traditionally does not ever use a space(s) in a
      file or directory name] but (windows stuff) in Wine does uses spaces.

      They do recurse down through hidden folders. They do list out the path
      of each found item.

      FWIW on Linux, I've listed two separate find commands as follows

      begin search from the root of the drive:

      find / -iname '*.clb'

      begin search from current directory:

      find . -iname '*.clb'

The path had fourteen levels, with a structural logic that was beyond my feeble mind, so it took some ferreting. Evidently the whole branch where this (and lots of other stuff) is placed is outside the scope of file searches, making it the Mac equivalent of dot-files I guess.
