Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've installed Ubuntu 12.10.

My computer has 2 hard drives. The OS is on one and I want to use the second for movies and music.

I formatted the the second drive ( dev/SDC1) as Ext4 with the label Media1.

I cannot create a folder on the Media1 drive. I also want all users to have read, write, and execute permissions.

I have two users set up:

  1. Media Server zam
  2. plex plexserv


I am assuming I need to use terminal and hope I have given enough information to have someone tell me what to type.
