I have just added my email vm drive to an Xfce vm system (created with Vmware Workstation 7.1.4). I have set the mount point to /media/Mail and this all seems to work ok. However the ownership of this drive (/media/Mail) is set to root and I have not managed to find anyway of changing the ownership and group to my usual user. I have tried chown -R xxx:xxx /media/Mail (in the root account) which indicates that the changes have been made but when checking the permissions they still remain at root.
Do I have to change the ownership of the disc itself, sdb1, and if so, How?
