Hey everybody this is my first post in a while due to me being scared to death of getting my head ripped off for not doing my own research. ;-)
It seems like I have looked everywhere but posts are referring to .xinitrc, ck-launch-session and others that from what I have read are referring to pre-systemd. I'm running xfce and can mount all my drives fine with sudo and while booting in with root but when using a normal user account I get a "Failed to mount/Not Authorized" error when trying to access any other hard drives in Thunar. If anybody knows a thread in the wiki they could point me to in order to resolve this I would be very appreciative. I'm relatively new to Linux but don't wan't anybody to do my homework for me. Thanks in advance.

Sometimes finding the right search terms...
Try Google, using this without the quotes: "site:archlinux.org thunar user mount fails"
Thank you guys so much! I can't believe I didn't look closer at FSTAB. Thank you thisoldman for bringing it to my attention that I can search google like that, I had no idea. This community is amazing!
and while you're at it, have a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Polkit.

I have made a personal commitment not to reply in topics that start with a lowercase letter. Proper grammar and punctuation is a sign of respect, and if you do not show any, you will NOT receive any help (at least not from me).
