Access partitions as root

If I open a file-manager (Caja, Thunar, PCManFM) as root in UM 16.04 I don’t get access to my other drives/partitions.

If I do the same (gksu) in UM 14.04 all my drives/partitions are available.

I don’t understand. Help…:weary:

I think that you must mount the other partitions first. Any partition not auto-mounted by your fstab file must be mounted before opening your file manager as root.

HTH.

Yes, you are 100 % correct. I don’t remember that it used to be like this. Anyway, problem solved. Thank you. :+1:
