Default How do I activate my sdb5 partition and have it stay active continually? **RESOLVED** Thanks to all.

Great! You just didn't have write permission for the root directory of
the partition's filesystem.

Yep, this is the output what I expected. You should now be able to use
the partition normally. Also, you can obviously rename or delete
NewDirectory and test.txt. That was only for debugging.
