@karasu I’ve still not been able to get any feedback on the mount options for the partition being on a SSD here or on my reddit thread. Someone suggested mounting with udisks2 which I’ve noticed installed, I haven’t tried this, not quite sure what the benefit is over editing fstab?
I’ve verified that the Gnome Disks app does modify the fstab file adding/modifying entries there. I’m not sure what this lost+found folder is which has 0 items, I understand the one in
/ but there doesn’t appear to be one on my other partition
/home. In the file manager it had a red X icon over it originally with ? items and noted as unreadable. I formatted the partition with the Gnome Disks app, the folder is still there and unreadable but states 0 items. Ownership of this folder alone is
root the rest is
Me. I’m told 1.8% of the partition is used but there is no data there?
Prior to the format I had the fstab entry and the partition mounted, no write permissions. fstab entry hasn’t changed besides the new UUID:
UUID=b0970df4-db1b-4934-b19d-cf470a3750f4 /mnt/data ext4 defaults,rw,noatime,discard 0 0 , I’ve copy/pasted the mount options from
Should I run
chown root /mnt/data to fix ownership? I’d like to be able to read/write/execute anything on the
data partition regardless of user account or current distro.
chmod o=rwx /mnt/data seems right? I don’t have any files on the partition atm so no need to use the
find command. What happens when I copy files over to it or create them as my user without sudo? I’ll be labelled as the owner right? But will the permissions not be rwx for everyone unless I chmod them afterwards? Is setting up ACLs or something else better in this case?
