Im totally new to Linux and to the forum. Im using Ubuntu 12.04.1 as a way to boot a failing hard drive on a Macbook Pro. I hope to be able to use the Ubuntu interface to backup some important files on the old hard drive before installing a new one.
I have my hard drive partitioned into two main drives; one that mounts as / and the other as /Data. I store all my music, documents, videos, etc on /Data. The /Data partition is automounted on login at /media/jeremy/Data. The / partition works as it should, however, /Data has some permission issues. Everything is mounted as 700, but I would like it to be mounted as 755.
I have a Dell Poweredge 1800 that I took out of service as a Windows server and am converting to a Linux file server. There are two disk drives. No problems with using Samba on the drive where O/S is installed. After multiple installs, second drive still can't be modified to change owner or access permission. I keep getting a message that owner does not exist and a system error.
If your hard drive can be detected and shows up as a drive letter in my computer but you can't access your files,then you can recover your data off it with data recovery software easily.
This way is the easiest and the most inexpensive way to recover your data.
