So I have an external. I installed an ubuntu OS on it a ways back and then never used it... there's a grub 15 error anyway so I only access it when I boot from somewhere else anyway.

I want to delete the partitions on this drive and make it a dedicated data drive. Just a place to store photos, no OS or anything, but I don't know how to get permission so that I can let gparted have its way with it.

Thanks for any help.
