I have a question regarding drive mounts.
I installed Elementary on a separate SSD. 3 partitions - swap, file system and home.
I then installed a 1TB hard drive. The drive was partitioned to ext4 and mounts as
What I then did was add another user - user2 as a standard desktop user.
When I log into user2, the drive appears in the sidebar of Files as "Drive" but when I click on it, I get a note something like you do not have permission etc.
So I edited the
/etc/fstab to mount the drive at startup. Though I wanted to mount the drive as
/mnt/Drive. So that's what I put in the
It worked, so user2 can access the drive through the folder
/mnt/Drive with full read write access but, it doesn't appear under Devices in Files sidebar. The orginal entry -
/media/user1/Drive - still appears in the sidebar but still no permission.
What I would like to do is mount the drive for both users in
/mnt/Drive and have the drive appear under devices in the Files sidebar as Drive for both users.
Is there any reason why internal drive gets mounted as
/media/user1/Drive but then doesn't share it? Does it matter if it is changed to
Any help appreciated, best alternative solutions etc.
