Since I don't know exactly how you changed the permissions I can't say for sure whether you fixed it in the way you think.

You may have only changed the permissions for specific files/folders, but not for anything newly created and saved on the partition to a brand new folder.

To test, try to create a brand new test folder (one that is NOT contained within one that you already changed permissions on) on the partition as your regular user and try saving a file to it as regular user.  If you can do that, then you likely did change permissions on entire partition.  If you can't, then you only changed permissions on existing things and did not change it for entire partition.

For example, if you currently have folder1, folder2, file1, file2, etc. on the drive, run test by trying to create folder3, then testfile1 inside of folder3.  (Do not test by creating a new folder or file inside of folder1 or folder2.)  Do that as your regular user only -- do not us sudo or su to access the drive.  If you can do that, then all is well.

Your right I couldn't make a new folder beside other ones I had made.
I started to copy files to new folders and got black screen with text errors.



After reboot I got libpng error: IDAT: CRC error

Thanks for your time and effort gold_finger.
Gave up to quick now back again
