Re: [vox-tech] Help with USB Hard drive

Thank you very much for all your answers.  After testing some of your suggestions I "discovered" that It is after all a USB drive and as root I have to umount it before logging out so the other users can mount it and use it...

Too bad USB drives do not behave like "real attached drives".  Well. Like the Rolling Stones would say: You can't always get what you want.

Have a nice one!

Did you make sure of the permissions on the mounting point?
