I have a new Western Digital My Book Live 3TB NAS drive and I need to mount it on my ubunto 12.10 laptop.
I have created a directory '/NASRichardsWorkLaptop' (changed its ownership and group to myself, and given it 777 access) and mounted the NAS drive onto that using the following line in fstab:
//10.0.0.14/RichardsWorkLaptop /NASRichardsWorkLaptop cifs defaults 0 0
However, as soon as it mounts '/NASRichardsWorkLaptop' becomes owned by root with 755 permissions and then only root can write to it. I need it to be read write to other users not just root. Any idea who I can make that happen?
sudo chmod 777 /NASRichardsWorkLaptop/ but the permissions remain at 755 even after this command (if its mounted), so I'm stuck!
