Questions about applications and software
In order to format my external hard drive I've backed up the files on my Linux Mint system. I formated the external hard drive to Mac OS X extended (Non-Journaled) and once mounted on the Linux Mint system it can only read and not write. I was told to change permissions but using the "permissions" tab under preferences tells me it cannot find the information.
