2nd internal HDD mounting in Dolphin as root only

2nd internal HDD mounting in Dolphin as root only
Hello,

I have a 2nd internal HDD for data only. This HDD is connected via SATA, hence the system detects it as an internal drive. Indeed, it shows up as expected as an unmounted drive in the Devices List on the left panel in the file manager Dolphin.

The goal is to mount / unmount that HDD not automatically on boot, but manually via Dolphin whenever it is needed.

Therefore, I made an entry in fstab for that HDD with its UUID, the desired mountpoint "/mnt/Data", ext4, and parameters "defaults,noauto,noatime,users". Moreover, I changed the ownership of the mountpoint to the standard user by "chown <user> /mnt/Data" and set the permissions accordingly by "chmod u+rwx,go+r -R /mnt/Data".

However, when I click on that HDD in the devices List on the left panel in the file manager Dolphin, it asks for root privileges. Angry

Please, what shall I do to get that HDD mounted as normal user?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Poseidon
