So i am new to ubuntu (very new) and i have been reading some articles about transfering and moving files in ubuntu system but nothing helped me much. I have an SSD that runs ubuntu, i have 2 other Hard drives that are empty. I have made partitions in them but i can't move files from my SSD to the other hard drives. I want my SSD to run ubuntu and only but when i download something it goes right in my SSD too, i try to move it to the others but then an error says that my access is denied. Please help me!!!

I made the partitions based on a siple youtube video with Gparted (Really quick the video guy said to wipe all data from my hard drive and use all the space for partitions) My output using sudo parted -l is:

  • How did you format partitions on your HDDs? Please [sdit] your question and add output of sudo parted -l terminal command. – Pilot6 Sep 27 '15 at 21:39
  • Please also add output of mount command. We will fix the permissions. – Pilot6 Sep 27 '15 at 21:53
  • what is the exact command?, or do i have to just write mount and post the outcome? – Dhmhtrhs Kaskouras Sep 27 '15 at 22:58
  • The exact command is mount. – Pilot6 Sep 28 '15 at 7:26

Newly formatted linux filesystems default to their root directory being owned by root and only writable to the owner. You can change the ownership to yourself if you want access with sudo chown yourname /path/to/drive.
