  • At the terminal, go to the directory that contains the mount point for the disk (so if the mount point is /mnt/disk go to /mnt.

    Run ls -l. This should list everything in /mnt with the owners and permissions. If your mount point (in this example disk) is owned by user and group root, then you just need to change ownership of the mount point and the disk attached.

    With the disk attached, run sudo chown -R user:user disk

    Replace each instance ofuser with your system username (if you’re not sure what you’re username is run whoami and it will tell you), and replace disk with your mount point directory.

    Here’s what this does:

    • sudo: escalates your privileges to run the chown command
    • chown: the utility that allows you to change ownership of files and directories
    • -R: tells chown to change ownership recursively
    • user:user specifies the user and group that will own the files/directories you are modifying.
    • disk: specifies the file(s)/directories you want to change ownership for.

  • You do need to be careful, but you can check for errors after editing /etc/fstab by running the command sudo mount -a. With the drive attached but not mounted. (Also good practice to use the UUID of the drive in the fstab entry)

    That command runs through etc/fstab and attempts to mount everything it is instructed to mount if it is not already mounted. And if there is an error it will let you know.

    If you run sudo mount -a and you get no output in the terminal, then there are no errors, your drive should now be mounted, and you should be fine for reboots and it should mount on startup as expected.

    There must be some invisible 10mm black hole just vacuuming up all the 10mm sockets and wrenches in the world. I can’t even tell you how many damn 10mm sockets and wrenches I’ve bought and I still only have one of each. Probably none. I haven’t needed to wrench anything in a couple weeks.

    I’m currently using Baserow, and so far it suits my needs well enough. I’m not a very demanding user, but part of what I love is how nicely Baserow documents the api. It made it very easy for me to implement some automations I wanted to use to record data.

    Edit: fix stupid autocorrect errors
