My hard drive is partitioned  /    ,     home - and a partition  for 'storage'.

The storage area is only available to 'root' , how can I change it so I have access as 'john' ?

as root

chown -R   john       /storage



or



sudo chown -R john  /storage



but yes, show /etc/fstab   Is your /storage set up that way to be accessed by a BSD or Windows OS?  Is /storage for backups?.



Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.

Don't know whether it is relevant but My folder is named fstab.d and the file  -  aufs / aufs rw 0 0

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0



which of course means nothing to Me.  :D  :D

I like to test all the versions of Sparky but I did it once and the system was unusable I had to use My backup (an external HD)

so when prior to re-installation  I partitioned My hard drive  root/home/ ?  (I have just noticed that when I mount it the label is it is media 263dd24a-60fc-4f3c-a4e5-0d536371b20b)

Show me the file called 'fstab' - it is located in '/etc' directory under all folders. /etc/fstab.d is a folder.

Show me results of two commands as root:

blkid

fdisk -l

Problem solved- Did not think to look at folder permissions   :o

Created a new folder and transferred contents  :D
