    Volume permissions

    Probably a stupid question.

    So I get a new hard drive, which hasn't been partitioned. So I partition it with GParted. Now it's owned by root and I can't do anything with it, nor figure out how to change its permissions.

    Which filesystem did you choose? (ext4, ntfs, fat32, etc)

    Re: Volume permissions

    You just need to change the permission of its mount point.
    Plugin your drive; its mount point will be inside your /media folder, let's say disk.
    Give this
    Code:
    sudo chown -R yourusername: /media/disk
    in a terminal.
