Perfect. One can also unmount the drive from the right-click menu.

comment How to get full rights in Ubuntu to manipulate a file that is owned by root
gedit can't do any file manipulations (beyond creating and editing) - and rightly so, it's a text editor!

comment How to get full rights in Ubuntu to manipulate a file that is owned by root
A file manager is not innately more dangerous than a command line. rm -rf / home/bar/my_dir being the classic. I wonder if nautilus puts /usr into the recycle bin :) Still, I don't see much alternative if the OP wants to do all the file manipulations in a gui with root privileges.
