I have added a new drive. I have also reformatted it. It will be a data drive and it is a 2tb drive.
I have also added the following to the last line of the fstab file.
UUID=40b93957-381c-47fa-a615-80af81d14b44 /media/drive2 ext4 defaults 0 2
The drive appears as "drive2" in media
It also appears as 2.0 tb filesystem in file manager
It sometimes mounts, sometimes does not mount, and sometimes does not want to mount
It also doesn't want to open any specific files as the permissions are screwed up
So, it looks as if I have cleverly really screwed things up. Before I start messing with chmod I thought I would seek some thoughts from others as to what I should really be doing (instead of foraging ahead and well and truly screwing things up)
Any thoughts would be helpful - thank you......
