Screwed up permissions: easy fix?

    • Screwed up permissions: easy fix?

      I installed the Calibre plugin and accidentally set "/" (the root folder) as the calibre data directory. This had the effect of changing the permissions of all my files and directories on the disk to owner "calibre" and group "users".

      I'm prepared to back up all the data, wipe the drive and reconfigure it from scratch, but I noticed in Access Rights Management > Shared Folders there is a "Reset Permissions" tab. How does this work? Will it automagically fix my disk or will I have to nuke it as planned?
    • I assume that you have to reinstall the system if all files starting from / have been modified.

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      Where did you set this at?

    • Then the reset permissions should help. They may not be the same as you had them but they won't be owned by calibre. Just create shared folder that has the path of / and the use reset permissions on that shared folder.
