Permission denied to external usb harddisk (ABANDONED)
« on: October 16, 2019, 02:47:14 pm »
As I wrote in my other topic, I just installed Peppermint 10 again, next to windows, and do not have acces to my data disk, whch works fine under windows.
Error message: directory/media/elias/F- Elements
Permission denied.
What can I do to solve this problem?
Thank you for any help

So the drive mounts and you can see the contents  .. but just can't write to it ?

Thank you for your quick respons. I can open the drive and open any document or file. Acces is denied when I try to put some downloaded content to the disk.
Anything works fine under Windows. But I don't like to work with windows unless there is no other option.

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
mount
and
Code: [Select]
ls -l /media/elias

By the way, I can copy content from: home/Elias/Documents to the external usb HD in question ...

The drive wasn't mounted when you ran those commands .. can you mount it, then run them again.

Sorry, I certainly am the eternal 'new user' ...
I was fed up and decided to install Peppermint again. This time version 9, so that I can use my printer again.
Th external usb hard disk works fine under Peppermint 9.
Thank you again for your help which  I appreciate very much.
