I hope to explain the problem in a clear enough way:
I created one partition using gparted formatted to ext4 on a disk together with a fat 32 partition.
This new partition was owned by root. I labelled it.
The problem is that when I try to chown to me, it display a strange behaviour: it creates another directory, or a virtual partition, apparently, with same name but with ‘1’ appended, and keeps the ownership to root.
Moreover, with a lsblk it does not show that automatic partition anywhere, but it exists only in GUI, in file manager, not on the left side menu, but when I go up one level, in the main window.
I have also deleted that partition, and re-created it with another label, but the one it created automatically is still there, and looks as it is a virtual one, it shows disk space not corresponding to any of the disks shown with lsblk!
How does this work, why?
How do I create and label a new partition without the OS (xubuntu) create another with same label.
I wish I could include some picture of the stuff I get on Thunar, I fear I am not as clear as I would;
I try to include a snapshot of what lsblk gives:
roman@roman-MS-7309:~$ lsblk -o NAME,RM,RO,FSTYPE,SIZE,PARTTYPE,PARTUUID,LABEL,MOUNTPOINT

and here is the result of ls:

As it can be seen, ‘zapata’ is the enigmatic, for me, partition.
I use Xubuntu 16.04
