I am new to Ubuntu. I have attached a new hard disk and it is mounted at "/mnt/sdb1" . I want to use that hard disk as network share when i try to change the ownership or permission its showing "operation not permitted". I have tried various commands like sudo chown ,sudo chmod , sudo naultius still I'm getting same error message. Please help .

    Please edit your question and tell us exactly what commands/how you are attempting to set the permissions. Also clarify how you are sharing this drive, and whether you are attempting to change the permissions from the machine where the drive is attached or from one that accesses it over the network. – terdon Jan 10 at 9:56
