Default Elevated privileges for JDownloader in Ubuntu

I am using Ubuntu 20.04LTS and JDownloader2 rev. 45186.
The system does not allow me to save my downloaded files in the folder "/mnt/data/Jdownloader" where "data" is an automatic mountpoint of the second partition of my HDD. I know that the directory is protected and I need admin privileges to save or write in this directory.
Question: how do I run JDownloader as an admin? Is there any other way to save the files directly on the other partition without using space on my system drive?

you should NOT run JDownloader as admin/root if not required. How have you installed JDownloader? I'm asking because flatpack/snap packages are limited to download folder only and you have to either modifiy the package settings or use the bundle installer from our website.
