Permission problem with files under a directory
 
/mnt/data folder is an ntfs partition i'm trying to access

i did a chgrp -RH data users (from the mnt directory)

what it did was change groups on only the directories, and did not change any of the files, they are still in the root group.

what am i doing wrong?

You're trying to apply something Linux to NTFS. Instead just choose the user
and group as mount-options in /etc/fstab


Cheers,

That was the problem. Makes sense and I didn't really think of the two file systems. Thanks for your help!
