I've plugged in a USB Hard Drive to my new Debian Jessie machine. I've got it to auto-mount by updating /etc/fstab:
UUID=21AE-9B96 /mnt/local/ext001 vfat defaults 0 2
...but it's owner is root and won't let me change anything. I've mounted it as /mnt/local/ext001 and have tried to:
sudo chown -R 1000:1000 ext001
...it grants me ownership over ext001, but nothing in it or below it, giving me:
Changing ownership of xyz, : Operation not permitted
I've attempted this using sudo and su. Where am I going wrong?
