Help with USB hard drive

I have a USB SSD hard drive that I use to record audio from my audio mixer. A few of the folders on it I can’t delete because It says it is a read only file system. I never set them up as a read only. Is there a way I can force a delete. I tried sudo rm -rf but it didn’t work.

I’ve had similar issues with USB drives while porting legacy data from place to place. Am guessing that you’ll need to confirm that the ownership and read/write permissions are available to you as user.

For this, you’ll want to reach for chown and chmod which I am assuming you either know about or can readily learn through various online resources.

What is the filesystem used on this SSD drive? There may be a problem if it’s NTFS.
