    Hi,
    I try to work with this, but i cannot change the properties, because I am not ‘root’.
    What the easy way to run this tool with a ‘root’ credentials ?
    In command and graphic mode if it’s possible.
    Thanks a lot!

      open a terminal

      sudo gnome-disks

      enter the your password.

      or

      If you are a normal user,

      open a terminal& enter the following

      su

      ask for password. enter root password. then enter following command

      gnome-disks

      then disk should be opened in root privilege.
