I had a non used partition, and as my /home has become full I have had to format that unused partition.
(My desire was to merge that partition with /home as it is listed next to /home, but as home is in use I can't do it, I can't unmount it. Help with this would be much desired too, even prefered, should I use a live-CD?).
So I have formatted with gparted that new partition as ext4 and put a name/label "home2". When I launch gparted it asks me about the computers password, so I run it with privileges.
This new partition is listed in gparted as /dev/sda3.
Then I open this new partition in the file manager (Thunar) but can't create folders or copy there. If I list its properties it says:
Owner: Root Access: Read and Write
Group: Root Access: Read only
Others: Read only.
Some help here. Thanks.
