http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all For a few weeks I had happily been using a newly installed second hard drive in my Ubuntu desktop. The relevant line in fstab is: UUID=6b7282d4-1760-4e16-854c-a6169da1b75e /media/SECONDDRIVE ext4 defaults,noatime 0 2But now the drive is failing to mount on start up, and when I manually try and mount it, I get an "exit code 1... only root can mount" error. Also, does anyone know why this problem would happen suddenly like this? The only thing I can think of that I might have done was to place onto this drive a file created on another Ub (Hardware)
