    Arrow Using the other harddrive?

    I used Gparted to format my other 200GB harddrive, now I want to use it to copy files to and be able to make folders in it, but i cant, i can enter it however. It is ext3 and I cant change "writeprotected" to "write and read rights" in properties manually. Im noob. What to do?

    It probably isn't mounted in fstab

    can you run these 2 in a terminal and post the output and I'll try to help

    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    sudo fdisk -l
    If you're going to bump you're threads try and wait at least 24 hours - certainly not 11 minutes. I realise you're getting frustrated but..

    Ok, thank you, the double bump was some kind of flux. Btw, maybe you can suggest a paypal or some kind of donate button for posts, it would be nice to be able to donate, even if just a tiniest amount, as thanks for the help. Generally, overally, always.

    Re: Using the other harddrive?

    This should work to get it mounted on boot, we can edit the fstab and add the partitions to it. I assume that you want to add the 2 partitions on the second hdd. I have no idea what Utökad means - but guess it's nothing to do with Linux - if that isn't the case post back, similarly if it's not the partitions on the second drive you want mounted.

    Backup the file to start with

    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.0205
    Make 2 folders to mount them in

    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/drive1
    sudo mkdir /media/drive2
    You can change drive1 and drive2 to what ever you want as long as you make same changes to the fstab lines and in the chmod and chown commands.

    We will edit fstab using nano in the terminal - to save file Ctrl+O plus enter, then Ctrl+X to exit

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/fstab
    File is now open for editing - be careful that you only change what you want to change - add the folders you want to mount using these lines at the end of the file

    Code:
    /dev/sdb1 /media/drive1 ext3 defaults 0 0
    /dev/sdb2 /media/drive2 ext3 defaults 0 0
    Save and close the file - mount the 2 partitions

    Code:
    sudo mount -a
    For permissions (I've got this from psychocats site - a good resource! )

    I assume your username is starship - if not change in these commands

    Code:
    sudo chown -R starship:starship /media/drive1
    sudo chmod -R 755 /media/drive1
    sudo chown -R starship:starship /media/drive2
    sudo chmod -R 755 /media/drive2
    Donate to your choice of software - not Windows though of course

    I'll be happy to have made you happy.
