On linux, the base permissions for directories is 777 and for files, it is 666. Thus, with umask=022, new files are 644 and new directories are 755.
But when I mount a usb drive with fat32 filesystem, the base permissions is 777 for both directories and files.
I have the following line in my
fstab file :
/dev/sdb1 /media/usbdrive vfat user,noauto,noatime,flush,fmask=113,dmask=002 0 0
So, new files are 664 and new directories are 775.
Is it normal for a usb drive with fat32 to have 777 as the base permissions for files and directories?
