I want to change the owner of a folder. The path to to that folder is
/mnt/8A30AA8B30AA7DB7/Books. I want to take the ownership of that folder to change the permissions. The folder currently belongs to root. I tried the following connamds but none seem to work.
chown apoorv_potnis -R Books
sudo chown apoorv_potnis:apoorv_potnis -R Books
sudo chown apoorv_potnis:apoorv_potnis -R /mnt/8A30AA8B30AA7DB7/Books
sudo chown -R apoorv_potnis: /mnt/8A30AA8B30AA7DB7/Books
The terminal displays
chown: changing ownership of '/mnt/8A30AA8B30AA7DB7/Books': Read-only file system and other files in the folder but does not actually change the ownership. Whenever I check the properties of that folder or the sub-folders, the owner is shown to be root and I cannot change the permissions or delete any file of that folder. How can I take the ownership of the folder? I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 with dual boot Windows 10.
