"the permissions of could not be determined" [SOLVED]

Post by yigit »

hello everyone...

recently i installed linux mint 17 cinnamon edition onto my hard drive, previously i used to use windows...

my hard drive was seperated into 2 parts: 80 GB and 240 GB...

i did leave the 240 GB partition as NTFS when i was installing linux mint, it was about more than 3 months

i have just formatted this 240 GB partition as ext4 using gparted and nowi got an error...

when i do right click > properties > permissons, i see this: the permissions of could not be determined

and i cant copy or open any single folder or file in that partition...

where have i done wrong? how can i fix it?

thank you very much

As step 1, double-check the format

Code: Select all

inxi -p
That will also tell you the mount point
Take a look at the ownership:

Code: Select all

ls -l /mountpoint 
(copy the actual mount point)
