So I was recently doing an Arch install and ended up formatting my HDD in the process with fdisk. I gave up on Arch and reinstalled Ubuntu 14.04. Now whenever I try and open my HDD in Nautilus I get an error 'This Location could not be displayed. You do not have permissions necessary to view the contents of "HDD".'
I can use
sudo nautilus and am able to view the files just fine. I can also format and relabel it with
sudo gnome-disks , but the issue is that is a pain to do and would rather just have access to it without being root. I've tried running
sudo chmod -R ug+rw /media/kalenpw/HDD but that does not solve this issue.
All the answers I find about this issue are about folders that always require elevated permissions, but this is the entire drive I can't access so they don't apply
Thanks for the help.
