I have tried : /media/brian/Timeshift&Media/ ...as the save path
Also the UUID

Nothing works. I receive an error: I/O error....Permission Denied

The downloads do work ok to the Downloads folder....but I am short on space on the main drive. The external has 900GB approx

What am I doing wrong.

problem Solved.

I noted that I could not drag and drop a simple .png pic into the partition 1 (which should have torrents sent ther from qbittorrent

However I could drag and drop the same pic into partition 2....(which holds backups etc etc etc)

I found this Terminal command from:: https://www.codegrepper.com/code-exampl ... tion+linux

sudo chmod ugo+wx /media/brian/b15dd874-57ae-4154-b296-b87733ce2825
(I am brian.....b15dd874-57ae-4154-b296-b87733ce2825 is the UUID number of partition 1
sudo...elevates the command in order to change permissions
u...is for the user
g....is for the group
o....is for other


So the whole thing of changing the permission on that partition 1 was :

[email protected]:~$ sudo chmod ugo+wx /media/brian/b15dd874-57ae-4154-b296-b87733ce2825
[sudo] password for brian:
[email protected]:~$

I then used : /media/brian/b15dd874-57ae-4154-b296-b87733ce2825 as the Default Save Path in qbittorrents preferences (downloads)

.....and away it went......no more permission denied error
