It's surprisingly cool, when I tried to mount it on another computer
which is sid one,

it works, I can copy and paste and also no problems create new folder.

and the mount information is different:

/dev/sdb1 on /media/FreeAgent GoFlex Drive type fuseblk
(rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)

seems I don't need reformate?
