Post by MyhomesVN » 2019/12/03 09:30:46

Hi there guys

So I'm having a problems with the permissions of my external drive, when I try to drag any documents it give the error "You do not have permissions to write to this folder". I tried to use the line bellow but is still not working any help with this?

chmod -R u+rw /media/Backups

Additional data I've formatted drive with ntfs and is a simple thosiba HDD 4TB

Thanks

Whoever

A couple of thoughts:

1. Why ntfs? Why not use EXT4?

2. This question/answer appears to discuss similar issues:
