I have Ubuntu 18.0 LTS, I have a internal harddisk of 1 TB but the problem is I am not able to copy or remove anything from it, I checked several questions similar to this but none of them worked. All of them try to change permission of files which I guess does not address my issue. As of now I have tried out these commands and here are their outputs, I am new to linux so please I need detailed answers.
The hard disk is on /dev/sda1
vi /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sdb5 during installation UUID=fe33f56a-d8bc-49d1-bee9-256510fbbc66 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /swapfile none swap sw 0 0
why I think the file permissions are not a issue is this:
ls -l /media/ace total 16 drwxrwxrwx 1 ace ace 8192 May 10 19:44 EE9480699480365D drwxrwxrwx 1 ace ace 4096 May 8 09:23 'New Volume' drwxrwxrwx 1 ace ace 4096 May 10 06:58 'New Volume1'
Well trying out chmod gives this
chmod 775 'New Volume' chmod: changing permissions of 'New Volume': Read-only file system
Please help me I require the hard disk space. Cause I am now using the hard disk in which ubuntu is present and I am worried I might run into trouble.
here's the output of
lsblk -fmi | grep -v loop
> NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT SIZE OWNER GROUP MODE `sda 931.5G root disk brw-rw---- -sda1 ntfs New Volume 508C46638C4643A6 /media/ace/New Volume 931.5G root disk brw-rw---- sdb 232.9G root disk brw-rw---- |-sdb1 ntfs System Reserved 942A05572A0537AE 549M root disk brw-rw---- |-sdb2 ntfs EE9480699480365D /media/ace/EE9480699480365D 58.1G root disk brw-rw---- |-sdb3 ntfs New Volume AC201B65201B35B4 /media/ace/New Volume1 115.7G root disk brw-rw---- |-sdb4 1K root disk brw-rw---- -sdb5 ext4 fe33f56a-d8bc-49d1-bee9-256510fbbc66 / 58.6G root disk brw-rw----`
sudo fsck -tntfs /dev/sda1
fsck from util-linux 2.31.1
nothing else happened even after reboot I tried the command you gave as well
