    Re: USB mounts as Root, am unable to write to disk

    It only happened a few days ago
    I suspect that an update installed something.
    Anyway now I can only open a ne copy of the doc and modify and save somewhere else
    Its very annoying.
    Any help about how to get my rights back much appreciated.
    If not I will have to format the pendrive and hope that works
    thanks

    After following the advice regarding usbmount, and removing this program, I am now able to access all files and write to the disk as well.
