Help needed ** Caught plotting error: filesystem error: cannot remove: Read-only file system

Hi everyone

I was previously running chia on windows10 but decided to change. I just formatted C: and installed the current OS, I did not touch rest of the drives (maybe this something to do with my problem)

I’ḿ now Running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
OS type 64-bit
GNOME Version 3.36.8

When I try to plot I get the following error:

Plot size is: 32
Buffer size is: 4000MiB
Using 128 buckets
Using 4 threads of stripe size 65536

Caught plotting error: filesystem error: cannot remove: Read-only file system [/media/xxx/Chia 6/plot-k32-2021-05-06-16-51-27a824e201b3ca6d4aef1140e11cea7723a3d7217777e3e637230ed2826afb40.plot]

I’ve been trying to sort it out by changing permission to the folders but have been unable so far.
I’ve also tried mounting the specific directory but it didn’t work

Does anyone have any idea what should I try?
Thanks in advance!

Sounds like your drive is formatted with NTFS. If you format it with something Linux can write such as ext4, XFS or exFAT you should be able to plot to it.
