Thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu. Ubuntu 15.04 (vivid) reached end-of-life on February 4, 2016.
See this document for currently supported Ubuntu releases: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases We appreciate that this bug may be old and you might not be interested in discussing it any more. But if you are then please upgrade to the latest Ubuntu version and re-test. If you then find the bug is still present in the newer Ubuntu version, please add a comment here telling us which new version it is in and change the bug status to Confirmed. Also I don't have a USB stick to attempt to reproduce this bug with, if teo1978 or someone who is able to reproduce the bug on a supported version of Ubuntu wants to return this to New/Confirmed and report upstream then please do so. ** Changed in: nautilus (Ubuntu) Status: New => Incomplete -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to nautilus in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1518740 Title: Filesystem type not shown (NTFS or FAT32) Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: I have an external USB hard disk connected; I think it's an NTFS or amybe FAT32 filesystem, certainly not an ext* one. I right-click on it on the left panel of Nautilus and select Properties (or I open it, right-click on the background of the right panel and select "properties", it's the same). Result: see the screenshot. It says: "Filesystem type:" and nothing follows. It should indicate the type of filesystem. Pathetic, as usual with Nautilus.
