In my opinion  --   via the terminal.  But I might be wrong.
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.

Just to add that you can get into caja as root by typing sudo caja in the terminal. Then you can work with any folders etc as root.

Should just be on right click - if not, install caja-admin
