Topic: visible but not accessible usb drive


I'm new to Linux and appreciate your patience with what I imagine is a newbie question. When I run GParted, it recognizes my external USB hard drive. However, the operations I want to perform, like copying a partition from this external drive, are grayed out. Does anyone know what I need to do to gain the same read/write access to partitions on my external USB drive that I have on my internal drive?




Re: visible but not accessible usb drive

Hello Michael,
I will make some tests about this point. I must admit i never try this.
BTW there is absolutly no doubt that it will take a ***very long *** time to perform such an operation....
But i may try to see how come that it is grayed .....
