My system has two (major) partitions: my Ubuntu install (mounted at
/, obviously), and my Windows install (mounted at
Furthermore, I've symlinked some folders from my Windows partition over to by Ubuntu partition (namely
~/Videos, and the like). This way, I have my system set up so that some folders stay in sync with each other in a reliable manner.
However, I occasionally run into the problem where I can't alter permissions at all, because the files are owned by
root and not me.
Ideally, I'd like to set up (somehow) my system in such a way that
/win32/Users/Owner (and nothing else) has both my user and group set as the owner instead of root. I'd also like to keep
root as the owner of everything else, such as to avoid accidental mistakes on my part.
Is this even possible? How could I do this?
