mounting the pendrive

mount -rw -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive

-rw: readable and writable
-t auto: filetype detected automatically
/dev/sda1: seems that this is the type of device for pendrives
/mnt/pendrive: i had to create the “pendrive” folder in the “/mnt” directory

after having done this, open the “/mnt/pendrive” folder to access its contents. After you are finished with it, close all related “/mnt/pendrive” folders and konsoles, and unmount it with the command:

umount /mnt/pendrive

if it gives an error message saying that it is busy, then give the command:

umount -l /mnt/pendrive

-l: “lazy” unmount which means, it will unmount as soon as the device stops being busy
