It appears I just managed something stupid. I locked my own account of my home folder.
Changing ownership back from root to the account was solved quite easily, but I want to understand how that happened.
Trying to repair something else, I followed the instruction of some guide on some page, and I used the chown -R command at some point, which I later learned has something to do with user-rights or something like that.
What exactly does chown -R do?
Also it seems I can no longer mount drives as that user.
