Ive decided recently to plunge into the Manjaro OS and am loving it so far. Its the breath of fresh air that I needed from windows. With that being said, I am having trouble getting files onto some of my drives. I have 3 drives, on where I have the OS (ssd), one NVME m.2 drive, and a HDD. I have gone through and looked at multiple tutorials and forms and wikis to try and solve this problem however nothing has worked.
Ive made sure that the drives are mounted by using etc/fstab, Ive also used this tutorial " How to Auto Mount A Hard Drive in Manjaro The Easy Way" and that didn’t work, and I’m sure Ive done some other things but alas, didn’t work. Ive seen somewhere that I may need to change the permissions so I can write to it but it didn’t make much sense to me so I looked over it.
If you are able to help I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance,
[apul@apul ~]$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
# be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
# disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
UUID=A80B-060B /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 2
UUID=79ce5b03-3174-4cef-ba1e-18eeb9aab214 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0
# Kobe (/dev/sdc1)

Sorry I forgot to ask you to put the output between 3 backticks like so:
You can edit your post if you want.
I don’t use ntfs, but I’ll give it a shot. Make sure ntfs-3g is installed sudo pacman -S ntfs-3g and try the fstab entry below. Replace userid and groupid with your users uid and gid, you can get them by running id
Make sure the partition is unmounted, if there’s a lock symbol then right click → unmount
Right click on the partition and select format to → ext4 from the menu. 5a. Select the partition, right click and select delete 5b. Right click on the unallocated space and create a new partition using ext4
Click the green tick on the toolbar (Apply All Operations)
You’ll need to change the fstab entry, you can get the UUID from lsblk -f or from gparted:
UUID=<uuid> /media/Kobe ext4 defaults 0 0
sudo mount -a
sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /media/Kobe
I reformatted the drives figuring it easier to deal with and to your credit it was.
I came from the end of the process after the mounting and after the sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /media/Kobe command.
I cannot paste it because the “Information-Dolphin” Windows wont allow it, however it reads, "Access Denied. Could not write to /media/Kobe/[some random file Ive been trying to drag into there]
I apologize for how annoying this problem is for you and I greatly appreciate your time
