I want do add a new harddisk to the system, with ordinary users having read/write-access to it. The disk should not be mounted during the boot process but on demand. I tried to add

UUID-{blkid-output} /home/[username]/data  ext4 defaults,noauto,rw,users 0 0

to /etc/fstab. As a result I was able to mount the disk, but I didn't get read/write-access to it. What did I wrong?

That folder has permission of the user?

No, I created the directory as root... A chown [username]:[username] did the job. Thanx!
