I have an external hard drive which both Ubuntu and Microsoft Windows can access (I'm pretty sure I used FAT or something). Anyway at the command prompt:
ls -l on the root level of the hard-drive.
What's weird is the owner is my Ubuntu user called
ub_user and the group permissions are a random UID that doesn't resolve...
So I thought I could fix it by doing a
chown -R ub_user:ub_user * on the hard drive and now
ub_user has group permissions as well as the weird UID.
Super confused. Didn't know there could be multiple group ownership of a file.
Is this coming from Windows?
Is there any way for me to get rid of the random UID users? Should I or will it break everything?
