Hi, this is probably about the most basic question for a linux noob to ask but I genuinely have not been able to find any help for this at all. The best I can do is find some commands but those don’t appear to be working.
So to give some background I just took some HDD’s out of an old computer and put them into my machine, they were NTFS but I didn’t need anything on them so I wiped and re-partitioned them as ext4. Which if I understand is the format that linux uses.
So the drives are in, they mount just fine and I can see them in dolphin and I can even see them in >lsblk
But if I attempt to do a >sudo chmod g+rwx ChunkyHDD(thats its name and label for one of them) then it returns that the directory doesn’t exist.
I get the feeling that the answer is something really really simple and easy but I am just at a total loss, closest I have seen is a post on this forum from a month ago but it seems like the OP abandoned it so rather than necro that thread I figured I’d make a new one for people if they ever come here and have the same issue I do.
I would gladly read an article or a guide if one exists for this but I don’t even know where to start looking for that kind of thing so any help would be appreciated. I do have some screenshots but apparently I’m not allowed to share those so, we’ll try make this work with text only I guess.
