    Go in to yast2-system-partioner if you can see the partition you can mount it there. Under the mounting options just type something like this /data(or whatever name you want)
    When done open your file manager e.g dolphin, thunar etc . It will show under file system or root.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    That will give you this sort of access: (drwxr-xr-x for root:users) which means that only the root user can both read and write to the drive. Normal users (like you) can read only. If you want to write to the drive, you need to change the mount options. Look under the button labelled "fstab options" in the Yast partitioner screen. It will show this:
    Code:
    users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8
    If you want to write to the drive, edit that to read like this
    Code:
    defaults
