    Angry copying access denied

    I record tv documentries on humax hd-fox--t2 on a small hard disk and transfer to an external 3tb hard disk.

    i keep getting access denied.


    There was an error copying the file into /media/44ab7280-dc57-43ab-be6b-3da7f0144543.

    Error opening file '/media/44ab7280-dc57-43ab-be6b-3da7f0144543/epgsavedata': Permission denied

    I formatted the external hard drive on gpartred

    Thread reopened, as we don't care what type of file it is. @bonbonjai, it sounds like a permissions problem, who is the owner of the file, and who is the owner of the drive you want to copy the file to?

    It specifically sounds like the DVR hard disk is mounted with the wrong permissions. Try this:

    Code:
    sudo chmod /media/44ab (press tab here) a+r
    Or it could be filesystem corruption that has corrupted the permissions.

    Has this external hard drive been connected to a Windows computer? if so, try re-connecting to windows again a do a proper "safe removal" procedure there (don't just simply pull the USB plug).

    Sorry for being too obvious but here is the procedure for safety removal. USB safe removal.

    Re: copying access denied

    Hi!

    Please provide the output of the following commands:

    # sudo df -h
    # sudo ls -ltrd /media/44ab7280-dc57-43ab-be6b-3da7f0144543

    And please provide information on how are you trying to copy the file (from a command line? from the desktop? which user? etc.)

    Hey,

    You could try mounting the HDD to another location with:
    $ mount -t /dev/[NAME] [LOCATION]
