Bug Description

I inserted a two partitions USB key in my laptop (one is NTFS, the other EXT4). I was not able to use it since the Files app did not show the partitions. I tried then in nautilus (from Libertine) but the following error was triggered:

Unhandled error message: Error getting information for file '/media/fabio/FABIO': No such file or directory

If I open the File app now, the partitions are listed, but clicking on them shows no files (actually the "No files" text) while the partitions contain some files.

I'm pushing to try and get native Nautilus support in Mir/Unity8. It seems the only blocker is bug 1602863 (which apparently has a fix upstream at least).
