Hello again,

Thanks to all that helped me set up my second drive and get it formatted and partitioned. It would seem that I have run into a bit of trouble again. I can mount the drive, I just can't do anything else. I can't create folders or copy files. When I check permissions, owner is root, group is root. What do I do?

Try this:

sudo chmod -R 777 <mount point of the drive>

Example: sudo chmod -R 777 /Music/

Why not just change the ownership from root to your login name instead of running chmod -R 777?

Assuming your login name is nemo and you mount that partition to /media/share. run


sudo chown -R nemo:nemo /media/share
ls -la /media/

That worked like a charm! Thanks! :)

I really tried to understand this tutorial but it was like reading Chinese to me:lolflag: I am still noob although I have been using Ubuntu for over a year now. Thanks though, maybe one day I will get it.
