[Solved] Can't delete files in partitions other than the file system

Post by kawaxy » Fri Aug 02, 2019 4:22 am

I am using Linux mint Xfce 19 . file manager: Thunar.

My problem is: I can't delete(or rename or move) any files from partitions other than the system partition.
when I try to right click on any file to delete it, the delete in the contextual menu is deactivated and also delete from the keyboard is not working.

even when I try to open a directory as root and try to delete it, it does not work. even word files are not editable!


update: problem was solved by logging into windows and troubleshoot the partition issues.

df 
and

Code: Select all

ls -al /the/partition/with/problems
