Vista messed up permissions (I think)
My wifes laptop uses vista and she keeps all our pictures and stuff on it. Well, something went on the mobo and HP want it back to fix it. As they told me that the drive would be wiped I wanted to get all our stuff off of it. I got the files transferred over to my Mandriva machine but the permissions are screwy. It tells me that I am the owner and it is my group but it shows the folder as locked and won't let me do anything with them. I've tried chown and chgrp to no avail. It seems to me that with the -R option it should switch the permission but it isn't.
