Ubuntu

I can't unmount

Asked by Devin Clark on 2012-05-11

I was trying to setup WIndows 8 to boot from a USB. I need to install Windows 8, and then dual boot Ubuntu. I made a mount folder but it won't delete now, or let me use my USB I put into my laptop.
I keep getting this error
umount: /home/user/Mount is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
Please somebody help

Linux is case sensitive so you can't just capitalize the mount command because the whim takes you

Trying un-mounting as superuser
sudo umount /home/user/Mount

If this does not help, please give output of
ls - l /home/user | grep Mount ; df

I suspect this mount was created as superuser with sudo and is owner by root.

Can you help with this problem?
