changing partition permissions

How can I make this Data partition be readable and writeable? I tried the "chmod 777" command, but was unsure of what directory to type in . I tried several but the command wouldn't start. This partition is on the second hardrive.


  • Could you be more specific I did not get what you are trying to do.

    If you want a partition to be writeable you need to mount it first at some location, than you need to list the permissions to why you can't write. Try
    ls -ld your-partition
