Running the latest Tails I have attached my hard-drive that got automatically mounted. However it seems only to be read-only.

Is there a way to mount it in read/write ? Or is this not possible since the file system is Apple HFS/HFS+ ?

sudo umount mount_point
sudo mount -t hdfsplus -o force,rw drive mount_point

you need to use force if you want to mount it as rw otherwise it fall back to ro

  • Is it read-only by default because it is still experimental code, or am I missing something? – Rui F Ribeiro Feb 10 '18 at 14:43
