File system locked up
« on: April 08, 2018, 03:41:33 pm »
I had this problem in windows where the file system would just refuse to send or copy my files or music from one drive to the usb drive. It just didn't want too. It just basically refused to give me permission to do so. I tried running it in SU and basically like my friend said and it just said authorisation failed when ever I entered my password. Please help me fix this issue. I'd like to keep making music and stuff on both PCs. Alienware now has windows installed on it but this laptop I'm typing from has latest version of peppermint.

Thanks,
Steph

plug in the USB stick .. open the USB stick in the file manager .. then open a terminal and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
mount
