Re: A software has turned my flash drive's filesystem into read only
On second thought, because some filesystem files, should have different permissions than others, I am not sure whether to stick it at 770 or 771. 770 might have some errors, but 771 can be somewhat of a slight security breach
I think I've out thought myself
sorry not reassuring.
Chmod changes read/write/execute permissions in which the first digit is owner, second is group (if you use samba shares or such) and the third is "everyone"
7=read, write, and execute
So a owner of a file and a group assigned to it (if any) can read write and execute to it. but those not assigned to be the owner of a file or a group assigned to it could not read, write or execute.
I would think you could go to the c/program files/ubuntu and change it there, but I have not used Wubi for nearly a year.
