no permissions sytems or rules have changed in mx. however some filesytems do maintain linux permissions whether they are removable devices or not.Mauser wrote: ↑Wed Jan 09, 2019 11:13 pmI found out the hard way that when you hook up an external HDD on MX-18 you need to open Thunar as root in order to copy and paste to it which I am re-backing up my data so I can put it on the new computer I built. In previous versions of MX you could copy and paste to it without opening Thunar as root. This has nothing to do with removing those useless destructive actions in Thunar. Looks like some file permissions have been changed in MX-18 which I am O.K. with but I wish it was mentioned earlier.
