I just bought a new SSD. I set up Kubuntu 13.04 beta on it and now want to use my old 1GB HDD as secondary storage. I've partitioned it using both a liveCD (opensuse), Kubuntu 13.04's KDE partition manager and gparted. Using each of these methods, I can't access my disk: the permissions seem to be wrong, and I can't set them to the correct user.
Can anyone tell me how to wipe a secondary (whether USB or SATA) drive under a given account to use with said account? I would most grateful!
