I guess LQemail to you doesn't work, because you get 1000s of 'fan letters' every day
(LQemail can't be retrieved/resent; it basically said that I finished that rambling Blog)

@naumanafsar, did you try your chmod command as root or sudo? Sudo is preferential. Also not just chmod, but chown is recommended to change the ownership of that directory to be owned by your intended user.

Thank you guys! this simple code worked for me
Code:
 sudo -i
chown -R username /directory
and a folder "lost+found" automatically created there
thank you! all for being supportive

Yes @rtmistler Problem SOLVED!!!
I didn't knew about the sudo -i command first
this worked great for me
Code:
 sudo -i
chown -R username /directory
i read the chown and chmod permissions carefully and i followed the steps (first sudoing) and it worked, now i have all the necessary permissions for /datapartition
Thank you! again
