How can I prevent password requests whenever I try to access a secondary drive?

Spread the love

I am a long-time computer professional, now retired. I am, however, a newbie to Ubuntu/Linux.
I built a new system using Ubuntu 20.04 as the main OS, the system includes 2 additional SSDs and 4 HDs from the prior (dead) system. The prior system was multi-boot with Windows 7>10 and OS/2. The file systems on the older drives are a mix of NTFS, JFS, and FAT32, although I don’t think this really matters.
When I try to mount any of the partitions on one of the other drives via Files > Other Locations, I am required to enter my password, twice for the first request, and sometimes again for a different drive.
This is MY computer. I am the only person living in the house, and NO ONE ELSE has access to the machine. I would like to prevent the constant requests for my password every time I try to do something.
Any suggestions?

Infinite Login Loop in Ubuntu 20.04

Spread the love          I’m facing an infinite login loop in ubuntu 20.04. I’m guessing that it’s because of the error “No space left on device” but I’m not sure. I don’t understand why I’m having a space issue though and how to solve it. X ITM Cloud News
