I have mounted an external usb drive on my linux (SLES 10) server. This works fine, besides one thing, after some the drive is readonly only. I have to unmount and remount the drive to make it writeable again.
If I try to touch a file I get the following errors (commands issued one after the other)::
touch: cannot touch `test': Input/output error
touch: cannot touch `test': Read-only file system
Does anybody know how to make the drive readwriteable every time?
Are there any timeout parameters fore mount or sleepmodes for the usb drive I can change?
