I've had this problem before and now it's struck me again and with full force!
Here are the details of my hard drive:
- 1 TB, HFS+ type partition mounted at /dev/sdb2
- Doesn't have write access for some reason (I tried copying files to it and it wouldn't take)
chown my-user-name /media/hdd-name/*didn't work
- This was not required as journaling was already turned off.
- This has never worked.
What gives? What should I do?
/media when I run ls -l, this is what shows up for attributes for my external hdd:
drwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 24 2012-02-24 12:42 Untitled 1
Untitled 1 is the (clever) name for my external hdd...
Who is the "99" bloke? :P
chown -Rf dnaneet:dnaneet /path/to/folder/
Please do leave any comments, thoughts/feedbacks pertinent to this solution...
I am reading this right now to get better informed about sharing data between OS's...
