    Red face Drive wont automaticaly mount becuse of password restrictions

    How do I remove permissions from a drive or auto enter the password? Under the drives properties tab there is a permissions section but it is all greyed out?

    Drives don't have passwords as such, unless the whole drive is encrypted.
    Tell us EXACTLY where this password is being asked for. I assume you are typing
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/raid
    That of course will ask for your user password to authorise against sudo, but when you mount on boot the mount will run as user root and will not need a password.
