I have a NAS that runs on Linux and I connect to it from my Windows desktop. I noticed that all directory in that drive belongs to user 'root' and group 'root'. That effectively denies me the right to write on those directory; only read rights.
Is there a way I can add my desktop username e.g. sara-laptop/sara into the Linux root group which will then give me rights to write on those directory?
I was thinking about changing the ownership to nobody/nobody which will give everyone rights to write on it. But could be a bad idea as I'm worried that other users will accidentally delete some of my items.
