I need to mount a new hard drive formatted in ext3 to /mnt/C such that
multiple users can use it.
However, all users can only read the data from the share drive
Below is my fstab *configuration:
/dev/sda1 * * * /mnt/C * ext3 *rw,auto,noatime,defaults 0 1
Do you have rw permission set to the contents of the the formatted harddrive? For example, if you want the whole thing to be rwx, do
chmod 777 /mnt/C/* -R. I personally, would do this:
find /mnt/C -type d | xargs chmod 777
find /mnt/C -type f | xargs chmod 666
This will make all directories in the drive writeable, readable and executable (necessary for dirs) to everyone. All files will be readable and writeable to everyone.
