I want to use 2nd (/dev/sda5) and 3rd (/dev/sda6) drive for my personal use but I can't do it. And I have no space. I have left 1st partition(140gb) for system and I want to use 2nd(40gb) and 3rd(50gb). Help me what should I do?

I am even ready to reinstall Os. Tell me what I should do now to prevent this issue?

cat /etc/fstab

    You are not the owner of the drives. Change ownership of the drives to your username with sudo chown -R username:username /mnt/karmoksh. – Jos Mar 5 '19 at 15:23
  • @user68186 I did a few things and now I am able to do it. I want to ask that is it okay to use the 2nd and 3rd partition for personal usage. because I read some that it is not safe. – Huxoor Mar 6 '19 at 2:09

  • Yes it is safe, why the jfs one though ? It is very common to use independent partitions for /home and for /opt but as scratch or arbitrary storage they should be fine. – mckenzm Mar 6 '19 at 2:13

sudo chmod -Rf 777 /media/name
