After using chmod
        chmod -R 644 /media/plato/mountedpartition/     (I see I forgot the * 
at the end)
        ls -l
listing has all entry's like these:
        First a list like this of every file and folder
                ls: cannot access /media/plato/mountedpartition/justafiile.txt: 
Permission denied
        Then one time
                total 0
        Folowed by
                -????????? ? ? ? ?            ? justafile.txt
                d????????? ? ? ? ?            ? Files
        One example of a file and one of a directory

If I do
        ls Files
I get
        ls: cannot access /media/plato/mountedpartition/Files: Permission denied
When I do
        sudo ls Files
I get a listing of the contents of files as expected.

Is this a bug?
It was not my intention to get this. I do not know how to get it back to what 
it was.
I tried it on a single file with
        chmod 644 justafile.txt
but that did not solve it. Any ideas?

Thanks for maintaining chmod
With kind regards,

The behavior you observe is what I'd expect once the permissions on directories are messed up. To fix it, try "chmod -R +X/media/plato/mountedpartition/" as root.
