Is there any way to change the mount rules on ?

It's showexec by default and I need it to mount as exec.

Files uses GLib functions for mounting and they do not provide any MountFlags to influence this. Maybe we could use the Linux.mount function, which does allow control over such options.

I suggest raising a wishlist issue on GitHub at https://github.com/elementary/files/issues.
