Copy from usb to share via terminal

Hi together,
my name is Christian and I’m changing from OMV to Rockstor. Before I buy an license, I want to fix my problem: the installation was fine, but I have following problem: How can I copy my Files from my external hdd (connected by usb) to may share in the terminal? If I plug in the usb device, it will be shown with command “lsblk”. Is the device mounted automatically and in case of yes, where is it mounted? thanks a lot for your help?

You can use standard linux mount procedures to mount the drive provided linux has support installed for the files system.

1 Create a folder in the /media folder for the name you want to mount to. It can be anything
2 Then mount the the drive. sudo mount /dev/{find name of usb} /media/{name in step 1}/

I use midnight commander for moving files in terminal.
yum install mc
then launch with comannd
mc you may need to use sudo mc if you have errors moving files.
