How to access to Linux folder when using a LiveCD?
 
Something went wrong with my computer. I want to copy my data folders to a usb drive and reinstall. So I'm using a livecd. However I can't access the folder. Under home/username the username folder shows a no-entry sign. When I use gksu nautilus I get loose the no-entry sign but just find a text file. How do I get access to the files that are there, I think they are encrypted.

Have you mounted the partitions on the drive you want to copy from? They need to be mounted to the live CD's file system. I would expect you could copy any encrypted files, however to use them later you will need the keys to access the files. I'm no expert on encryption, I have used it a few times though.
