Hello

I've just formatted a USB harddrive in line with the instructions here

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/How_to_-_Format_and_Partition_External_Storage_Device


And I must have done something wrong because when I created a folder called "Music" and then opened the folder, I found myself looking at another folder with the same name, and if I opened that I saw another "Music" folder and so on.

What could cause this?

Thanks,

Hi,

In case it helps, please find attached screen shots of my USB and NAS pages on the router admin. Maybe someone can see something that looks wrong?

Something that is odd is that it looks like the Data partition has been formatted to ext4, however I know for a fact I chose ext3 when doing it in GPart.

It sounds like you are just opening a circular pointing location. If you really want to just look at the folder itself via command line.
