Not sure where to post this, but Im a newbie to things like this so I figured this will do.
Im running Ubuntu 10. something Ill look in a min and update this thread when I get to work later today.
EDIT: its version 10.04
My better half spilled some coffee on her 8month old macbook and it decided not to work anymore. Apple says it will cost around $800 or more to fix, we wont be paying that, Ill be finding a logic board or service somewhere online now that our warranty is shot and going that route.
But before I send the macbook off anywhere I need to pull some data off the HDD. I was able to plug the HDD into my Linux box(internally, I dont have an external enclosure). I was able to mount the drive and copy the directories I wanted to the HDD on my linuxbox.
But Im unable to to access the directory from the terminal or from the file browser, I get an access denied message. Because I know the username and password for the macbook is there a way I can use that to gain access to the directories?
Google got me this far, but when I googled "access locked directory ubuntu" or any variation of that with the terms linux and osx thrown in there for good measure, I cant seem to get anything good.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
