not enough drive

I got my new 1TB external HD from the UPS store this morning, and it's snazzy. Unfortunately, the 3 external drives I have don't appear to have anything on them I can use. I can't get into the files on two of them due to not having "permission" set to do it. I forgot how to remedy that, so .. who knows what I'm missing out on?

I'm so unmotivated today, I just don't know how to get myself in gear and moving. I wish I could find and press my 'reset' button. Or if I found it, would I just stick a paperclip in there and jam it in place?

I'm just so much better at giving advice than taking (or even asking for) it. Best thing is to keep my head down and hands moving as much as possible.

Does the command line let you "chmod 777" to the root of the drive's file structure?

Also, plz not be messing with personal reset button with paperclip. I have it on good authority that in men, it's the prostate.

I need to find some sort of resource online to find out how to allow me to do change these things. I'll hook it back up later and try.

Hmm I dunno if pressing buttons now would lead to flipping switches later; I can't have all my error lights flashing all day.

Does your user account have write access to the new drives?

I dunno, I'll have to reattach them and check all of them. But I just want to read/open/copy the files actually, so I don't know if that can have an effect..
