Cant make hdd writabe

im trying to make my 1tb hdd writable but havent found a way

  1. Welcome aboard! :rocket: :partying_face:
  2. Open Terminal
  3. cd to that disk
  4. Own that disk!
    sudo chown $USER:$USER .
  5. You can check now with
    ls -ld
    should be something like:
    drwxr-xr-x 5 YOUR_USER YOUR_USER
    That means it’s writable :upside_down_face:

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

In what state is your system? Is it already running EndeavourOS or something else?
Can you see the disk with a file manager or terminal commands? If so, what do they show?

thank you it worked
