I have an NTFS-formatted external harddrive that I'm going to reformat to ext3. Before reformatting, I rsynced all the contents to a different drive (ext4 on this one). Now I'm unable to access any of the rsynced files from the new drive, even as root. from the cli, doing a cd into the directory just shows 'permission denied' when doing an ls, and attempting to mount the directory from dolphin gives the same error. This happens when trying to access it as the user and as root. Googling around showed a similar problem being solved with chattr, but I couldn't figure out how to use it in my case.
output of ls -l in directory containing the rsynced directory: (chmod on this directory also gives permission denied)
drwx------ 11 matthew matthew 0 Apr 11 18:31 media-backup/
The ntfs drive was properly accessible before I moved things around. The rsync was done with the options -aviP.
I'm not really sure how to proceed from here. Thanks for any help!
