I've been using FAT32 1 TB external hard disk on a Red Hat system. For the past two days, the hard disk permissions change automatically, even when i'm working on a program. I tried using the hard disk on Fedora 15 OS and it still gives the same problem, though not as severe as in Red Hat. Can anyone help me with this?

No, in the middle of working on a program, the file as well as the folder permissions change to read-only. Any change in the file or folder cannot be made after that. Also some files get corrupt. Once the hard disk is unmounted, and remounted, the permissions go back to read-write. But this problem reoccurs once the disk is used again.
