Ok so I am a little stuck guys, here is what I am trying to do:
I have my harddrive and a freinds harddrive in my computer. His harddrive has windows on it and so does mine. His harddrive however has a corrupted windows file and will not start so I put it in my computer and booted up my MEPIS live cd so I could view the files.
He pretty much wanted me to get some of his pictures, his movies, and music, save it to MY harddrive, then wipe his harddrive clean. After I wipe it clean I want to reinstall windows and place his files back in his harddrive.
Here's where I have a problem. I successfully opened his harddrive and can view it through MEPIS however when I try to copy the files over to my harddrive I get this:
root@1[My Documents]# cp -a My\ Music /mnt/hda1/My\ Downloads
cp: cannot create directory `/mnt/hda1/My Downloads/My Music': Read-only file system
So apparently my harddrive is 'read-only'? How can I set it up so that I can copy the files? I am under root btw too.
