I have an external drive. When I just plug the drive into the PC, with a default
/etc/fstab file, the OS just detects it and it's there in the Dolphin browser. I can select it, I can navigate to it on the command line, read/write/etc the files on it, etc.
I'm trying to mount the drive into my home directory so that Plex Media Server can access it. I've done this a million times before with this same drive no problem, on Linux.
I recently re-installed the OS and went to set up the drive, same as always. Again, this exact same configuration has worked in the past, on the same version of Linux (OpenSUSE Leap 42.1), on the same machine, with the same hard drive. I've added this entry
UUID=F474B7AA74B76DCC /home/craig/MediaDrive ntfs-3g defaults,nofail,permissions,auto 0 1
/etc/fstab to mount the drive in my home directory.
I get it mounted to
The first weird thing is that
ls -l shows
d--------- 1 root root 12288 May 16 18:33 MediaDrive
So then I go to set ownership and change permissions with
sudo chown -R 777 /home/craig/MediaDrive
and I get the error:
chmod: changing permissions of ‘MediaDrive’: No space left on device
The thing is, there's plenty of space left. There's over 300GB of space left. I'm pasting my
df -h output below.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sde1 1.9T 1.6T 316G 84% /home/craig/MediaDrive
It doesn't seem to be an inode issue; here is the output of
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on /dev/sde1 331060948 4846 331056102 1% /home/craig/MediaDrive
Again, this permissions issue only exists with the drive when I try to mount it in that location (in my home directory); otherwise when it's just at the default run/media/craig/My Passport location, it's fine. Reads, writes, etc.
How can I get my drive to mount successfully in my home directory?
