Hello all, it's been a while. I've recently built myself a new desktop with a dual-boot of Windows 10 and Kubuntu 20.04LTS. I updated from 12.04 (yeah, I know) to 20.04 and just noticed a problem. Rather big one, for what I do.

Here's the disk setup, to put it out here:

I am using UEFI under GPT. The main disk is a NVME SSD with a windows partition and Kubuntu partition (and all the other necessary partitions); the secondary drive I use for storage etc. is a 1TB SATA SSD with a single partition formatted as NTFS. All of the boot, windows, and storage partitions were created using the windows install media, and Kubuntu was installed after all that was in check. Now the problem is, I can't write ANYTHING to my storage disk from Kubuntu. Nor can I write to my windows OS drive or anywhere on my Kubuntu root. Removable media behaves normally, as far as I can tell. The only place I can write any data to is my home folder. This has never been an issue until now. It all works fine if I boot to Windows.

It gives me an error, but not any more specific than "could not write to [file path]" or "could not make folder [folder path]". Again, this happens any time I try to write data outside of my home folder (even though it may be on the same partition). In the terminal, I simply get a message that says "cannot create directory [folder path] : Read-only file system".

Would someone be kind enough to explain why this is happening, and how I can fix it? I have searched the web, and can't really find any information that helps me.

Thanks in advance,
