Removable storage: filesystem without permissions?
I have an external hard-drive and I'm looking for a way to avoid permission-inconveniences (especially for write-permissions).
The problem is that the creator (owner) is by default the only one getting write permissions to directories and files, and that the owner is changing as the hard drive is plugged into different computers.
I believe that the ID of the creator is used, not the name - the name would however have little meaning on different computers.
The point is just that I think file permissions are of little use on removable storage; anyone having root access on any computer can just connect the storage to that computer and change permissions.
Or do you find any use in file permissions on removable storage (if it has one user)?
So I was just wondering if there is a way to get a "permission-free" filesystem or have Linux ignore the file permissions for a device?
I know vfat could be used since it does not support file permissions, but it also makes too strict restrictions on file sizes (2 GB?) and names (case-insensitive).
Thank you for any help on this!
