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???

Go into the /mnt/ Folder, right click on hda5 and then there should be somthing about permissions there.
Thats in FC3... but if you're using Gentoo or mandrake or smothing... try googleing it.

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!)
