Re: USB flash drive mounted for root only

I seem to have resolved this by removing the /media/nate directory and
letting it be recreated when mounting the flash drive again.

After removing the above directory I now have:

$ ls -l /media/
drwxr-x---+ 3 root root 4096 Dec 14 13:24 nate/

in /media where the permissions now have a trailing '+'.  The directory
under that looks better as before I could not even do an ls of the
/media/nate directory:

$ ls -l /media/nate/
drwx------ 31 nate nate 12288 Dec 31  1969 B6A0-ED18/

The output from mount is the same.  I can now read and write to the
flash drive.

It appears the trailing '+' hints at extended attributes/ACL that rsync
didn't copy over when I copied the system to this hard drive.
