Change ownership/mount location of External hard drive
I have a Seagate Freeagent Go 250GB USB external hard drive. I usually use it on my MAC but would like to be able to use it on my desktop machine which runs 9.10. I can only read the drive i cannot write to it which is the issue.
Here is some other info to maybe help guide my problem.
Where all other volumes say 'root' the external says '99'
when using 'mount' command it returns that it's type hftplus
under the 'fdisk' command it shows /dev/sdc1 and that it is HFS/HFS+
Not exactly sure what's going on here, It seems that i need to change to user from 99 to root or to my user name. Any idea on how to do that or of what's going on? Thanks.
Re: Change ownership/mount location of External hard drive
Figured it out. When i originally purchased the drive it wouldn't work on my Mac so i reformatted it wish OS X disk utility. I didn't realized i selected that it be journaled which apparently complicates things. I'll have to dumb it's contents onto my laptop and reformat it someday.
