Problems with mounted drive permissions
I am having problems with accessing other drives as a regular user. I understand that if I login as root, I would be able to access anything I need. But I was told that being root is dangerous for my system and I should only use it when installing apps.
As a regular user, I have been trying to access a second mounted hard drive (this drive is formated FAT32 and used by Windows, also installed on this PC) I am able to read this drive, but cant wright to it. I tried adding myself to the ROOT group, but I was still unable to wright to this drive. Then I noticed that the user "root" had full access, but the group "root" only had read. I have tried to change the permissions for this drive, but they wont stick.
