    And if it's an external drive, it's 99% sure to have a windows format, fat32 or ntfs, so check that it's mounted drwxrwxrwx to allow guests to write to it over the network.

    [SOLVED] Re: changing owner of drive

    If it's mounted in directory "mount_dir" at /path_to/mount_dir, run this command:
    sudo chown phil:phil /path_to/mount_dirand it will change ownership to user=phil, group=phil.

    That's for ext3.
