chmod and subdirectorys
im using puppy 3, and im am using this to access a freinds ubuntu system that is down. I can access the HDD's that he has, but i can not copy off all of his home directory documents and files.
I have tried
chmod 777 /mnt/sda1/home/tony
but this didn't work. So i looked at the chmod --help and see that i should of been using
chmod rwxXst //mnt/sda1/home/tony
This seamed to work better...... BUT when it came to accessing the subdirectorys it said that i couldn't as there was not right too this. What am i doing wong?
I would like to change ALL the files and directorys in the /home/tony/*.* open them up so i can copy them to another drive.
