Posted 08 February 2005 - 04:42 AM
I belive hav have just mounted my unused 30gig partion i use in windows and i beleve have mounted it as hda5
mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5
it dosent say anything after just goes to another command line.
when i look at the properties on the /mnt/hda5 folder it says its about 30gig so i figure ive done it right
but what i would like to know is how do i copy files etc to this folder because when i copy and paste to the folder it just coms up with an error saying:-
Could not write to /mnt/hda5/(filename)
can anyone help???

This will give you direct rights to mount and transfer any files from any partition, as long as it is mounted.
Remember, you mounted the drive a root, so it needs root privileges to access the drive.

/dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5 ext3 defaults,users 0 0
That line if added to your fstab will mount the /dev/hda5 drive automatically on boot up. It is configured for an ext3 system. It allows all "users" which is a group, to access the drive freely.
(I am at school at the moment so not sure if that is perfect syntax, but should get yuo going!)
