I have changed the external drive and seen that the new one works. The
issue is, I guess, that the first drive was named "My Passport", with
a space in it, while the second one is "Iomega". Spaces in drive names
are not accepted by Linux, which could explain why they are a problem
also with git bash (even if bash could access them using what is
passed to it, which is a drive letter, and not the drive name).
