I just installed a SSD hard drive in my PC and configured it with gParted. After mounting it I accessed the drive and all the permissions are set to root. I can't remember if I use chmod or chown to change them over to me, as well a drawing a blank on the correct syntax for the command. I remember starting with "sudo" then the correct command, followed I think by "sdb", and at that point it all goes blank. It's years since I had to do any kind of CLI relating to drives, and my memory isn't what it used to be.
