I've mounted it as /media/bigdrive however, I get permission denied whenever I try to touch a file there as a non root user. When I run mount I can see this line: /dev/sda2 on /media/bigdrive type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro) My /etc/fstab has this line: /dev/sda2 /media/bigdrive vfat rw,user,exec,umask=000 0 0 I've tried running sudo chmod 777 /media/bigdrive and sudo chmod 777 -R /media/bigdrive Neither one changes anything. Is there anything I' (HowTos)
