I have a dual-boot Windows 10/Xubuntu 16.04 set up. Both share the small SSD for boot, and both have home directories on the data drives.
/dev/sdc is the data drive, and it's mounted at
/mnt/archives. When I ran
usermod -d /mnt/archives/mike mike against my user to move my home drive to the data drive, it worked just fine after a reboot. When I originally changed my home directory, I had
/dev/sdc mount under
id=0,gid=0, which was mounting everything as root. I changed the mount to
id=mike,gid=mount_group, and rebooted my computer. However, when I go to run
sudo chown -R mike:mount_group /mnt/archives/mike/*, it doesn't actually change any of the permissions. :/
Here is my
# cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sdd3 during installation UUID=8db38c8f-87b6-4174-a439-fd60dbb7b313 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sdc /mnt/archives auto rw,relatime,user_id=mike,group_id=mount_group,allow_other,blksize=4096
Here is a sample of the directory:
# ls -lah /mnt/archives/mike/ total 88K drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8.0K Oct 23 15:50 . drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4.0K Oct 23 14:30 .. drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 3 23:05 .adobe drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4.0K Oct 3 23:36 anaconda2 drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 9 00:14 .astropy drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 9 00:19 .aws -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6.5K Oct 23 15:49 .bash_history -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 220 Oct 3 22:24 .bash_logout -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 948 Oct 23 14:33 .bash_profile -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3.8K Oct 23 14:34 .bashrc -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3.7K Oct 3 23:36 .bashrc-anaconda2.bak drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4.0K Oct 23 16:01 .cache drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 8 17:21 .conda ...
How can I fix this odd permissions issue?
