How to mount another hard partition

Asked by Daniel Carrier

How to mount another hard partition, I tried with disk utility and the mount function is not available. I try to mount an old Ubuntu 10.4 partition that is on the same hard drive. I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 and I would like to access the old data. I can see the partition with disk utility but there is not mount volume function function, only the Unmount volume. I did a check filesystem function and it says: "Device is mounted and no online capability in fsck tool for file system"

Thanks for help.

The owner (user) should have access to mountpoint.
lets say the UUID is 4140dca6-fb8d-48b8-a427-c00093cb684a mounted under /media.
You could run Nautilus with temporary elevated permission:
gksudo nautilus

navigate to /media/<UUID> and give permissions to current user.
Or in a terminal:
sudo chown -R <username:groupname> /media/<mountpoint_uuid>

## Usually username and groupname are identical.
