    Hello and Welcome
    I think you need to add the new hard drive to the /etc/fstab file and in doing so this will allow you to set the permissions for the drive also. See the man page for fstab, open a temrinal window and issue this command
    Code:
    man fstab
    You already have the file, you just need to add the new hard dive to it.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    i tried to use the
    mkdir /media/disk/user command but it said file or dirrectory does not exist
    i tried somethin different what i did was i opened the partition
    and i opened the lost and found folder as administrator and from there i clicked on the partitions from the side window and it let me change the from root to user and it allows me to create and delete files on it

    im not sure if this is just temporary or if this is the actual fix to the problem but if i try to use the man fstab will that effect any partition i created
