Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That's a good question, especially from someone who on their first post asks directly how to crack a password. The way he asked the question is highly suspicious. If I would have this problem and ask the question I would say the exact nature of the problem and what I should do, not "I wanna crack/break the password". I dunno, but I think it's suspicious.
it is actually linux server which is used to back up all the data and now i have to find the delete folder data in this
That does not answer the question completely actually. You talked about a password protected folder. I asked how does the password protect the folder? Which program is asking for a password, which program did you use to password protect your folder? How is this directory protected, that is my question.
And now you talk about the delete folder. Do you want to resurrect data that have been deleted?
You need to be precise with what you ask. If your question is too confused, nobody can help you.
I think this guy is trying to access a folder which DOESN'T BELONG to him/her. RED FLAGS ALL OVER!!! if he/she had a user name on the network and the proper rights to access this folder by just typing his/her log on credentials he/she would be able to access it.
