I have a 1000 gig Windows SATA HD

I don't want to Delete the Windows installation in case I sell this HardDrive with he pC it came with.

Using Gparted, on by Ubuntu 17.10 PC running from a SSD drive, I Shrinked the 1000 SATA hard drive so the Windows in left untouched

Created a 400 Gig partion EXT4

And I can't create Folder within this partition but can see it from the FileManager

As I can understand, your mount point is named BackUP.

So you should take ownership of the filesystem with:

sudo chown $USER:$USER -R /media/$USER/BackUP
