Re: New usb XHD Says I'm Not the Owner

Yes. The XHD is working perfectly now. I still cannot change the owner of this HD but all of the Permissions are now appropriately set, and I am able, once again, to transfer files to this device. Thanks for all of your help.

Re: New usb XHD Says I'm Not the Owner

I fixed it !!!! I read on another page that the program Disks has a reformatting feature so I tried it. That made it worse.

AndyMH: I did what you suggested and I was able to get to the Permissions screen. But when I scrolled up to put my name in the owner box and clicked on my name, it ...

Re: New usb XHD Says I'm Not the Owner Post by bob466 » Fri Jul 26, 2019 3:14 pm Thanks for the information. I tried the reformat as you suggested but it was still a No Go.

SOLVED 25 July, 2019 Linux Mint Forums Hi, again, I recently bought a new 2Tb External Hard Disk Drive, aka XHD, for my Linux Mint 19.0 Acer laptop.

Re: New HD Won't Open for Second Session

Thank you, deck_luck, for your swift reply. As I mentioned in yesterdays posting, I did use the "eject" command once and came away with the same problem I have described to you. Hence, I have been cautious about using it again. You mentioned the "disks" utility. What is that and where can i find it?...
