I installed Kubuntu 6.10. I went to the terminal and initiated the oem config.
Before rebooting, I installed NTFS-3g.deb. I had access to my NTFS partition (Seperate HDD, see signature below).
I deleted a big file. All was well.
I rebooted. I got to the "New user menu". I started adding details. I clicked continue/OK. Before it completed the operations, there was then a powercut (a common occurance in Kenya).
When power returned, I turned on the PC. None of my passwords worked. Frustrated about this, I left the PC.
Later, I receive Kubuntu 7.04. I install a clean copy (Format + Installation). I decide to remain with the oem login this time. I instead create a new user and join the user to all groups (root included).
I install NTFS-3g.deb. I have access to my NTFS partition. ".Trash" folder is obviously not visible in linux, but very visible in Windows. Windows cannot open folder. Kubuntu can open, but cannot delete folders within.
One question: Can the .trash folder or the folders within, be deleted without formating the windows partition?
