File permission, change ownership
Top of the morning,
I am trying to change the ownership of a storage drive's directories and respective files, but it's not quite working.
The /etc/fstab for the drive is as follows:
/dev/hdb1 /home/hdb1 vfat user,auto 0 0
I have tried to change the file ownership with:
chown user -R hdb1
which results in operation not permitted for all directories and respective files.
I have also tried:
chmod a+wrx -R hdb1
which result is about the same thing, operation not permitted.
Mind you, at one point, as a user I did have access to the storage drive with wrx permissions. I am just not sure as to what has changed.
Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
