Acess to External Hard Drive

I recently faced this problem of writing to my external hard drive with EXT3 Partition.

For partitioning use gparted. If not previously installed type sudo apt-get install gparted.

Now to have write access to the partition type gksudo nautilus. It will open a new window in root mode. Now navigate to your drive, right click and select the permission tab.
Change the Owner drop-down menu to your name, then change Folder Access to Create & Delete Files, then File Access to Read & Write, then Group to your name, Folder Access to Create & Delete Files, File Access to Read & Write then click Apply Permissions To Enclosed Files.

You will now have full access to your drive.
