Since I installed Mint 8, I now have to supply my password to access my other drives (eg Windows C: and D: drive).
Is there any way of saving the authentication so that I do not have to keep entering my password?
Also, a problem which started in 2008 with Elyssa is still lingering - when a user logs off, any mounted drive is remaining mounted with the permissions of the user who mounted it. The next user to login cannot access the drive until it is unmounted, then remounted with his own permissions.
Access to my other drives is gradually becoming more painful with each new release. Is this a security feature or a problem?
