Attached NTSF HDD block device partition xvdi with Qubes device widget.
Opened gnome-disk-utility in F-33 AppVM.
This only occurs with Fedora-33, Fedora-32 still functions. The F-33 Template was installed by me per https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/templates/fedora/#installing. The F-32 Templates were created in a clean OS install from a signed Qubes ISO. A USB drive attached to the same F-33 AppVM is mountable.

Please check ‘/dev/xvdi’ and the ntfs-3g binary permissions,

Apparently, Fedora adopted a Tuxera NTFS-3G driver for R33. That’s a broken link though.
I have a standard SATA Western Digital black drive (a WD-1003… I think) NTFS formatted with only data files - no system besides the GPT vol info and unencrypted (need to do something about that though).
Any ideas? Could it be a config issue? I suppose I can replace it with a new SSD; it is pretty old.
Thanks for your help and knowledge.
