rm -r /media/externalHD --> can't boot without external HD anymore

by Goldfisch   Last Updated November 04, 2017 19:02 PM

My external HD was mounted in /media/user/TRANSFER. By mistake I typed

sudo rm -r /media/theo/TRANSFER

There was an error because the device was occupied and fortunately, I haven't lost my data.

But now, I'm facing the problem, that I can only boot, if my external HD is plugged in and it has a strange colorsheme in the terminal: output of ls -l /media/theo.

Here is the entry in /etc/fstab:

UUID=43D0-11ED  /media/theo/TRANSFER    vfat    rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,user,exec,umask=0030   2

What can I do to fix the error?

Thank you very much for your help!
