Cannot write to devices in Garuda Linux

Hi, I've used other arch distros before and everything worked fine with this one until suddenly I could no longer write to any device, whether that be through dolphin or bash. I have changed permissions and ownership of the directories countless times, nothing has worked.

Can you provide more information? It is unclear what is happening.

Also post garuda-inxi please.

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post.

Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Boot into Windows and disable "fast boot" (or whatever it is called) and make sure Windows is fully shut down before booting into Linux. Have you tried that yet?

Nope

Possibly you have not disabled HW RAID controller in BIOS.
Change to AHCI if not already (I assume inxi would not see RAID else...). :roll_eyes:

Thank you. I knew having windows on this machine would screw stuff up.

What does that little arrow symbol mean?

Check your garuda-inxi and if you have reboot since your last update :slight_smile:
