New Ubuntu installation on single user system.
Created partition for data. Not accessible. Permissions says, owner is "root."
"You are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions."
How do I fix this?

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /path/to/partition
$USER will automatically change to the current active user.
-R means that it will operate on files and directories recursively.
