Yesterday I received a laptop that would not boot and i needed to get the pictures and documents off of it. I booted into Ubuntu with a Live CD (installing is out of the question) and zipped up all of his files. It wrapped up to about 5.3 GB.
I decided i should burn 2 DVD's for him but since I was running off a Live CD, i could not. Also his USB Ports and Ethernet port are busted. So I tried to change the hard drive to a shared folder but it would not change the permissions. None of the fixes have worked, since I'm on a Live CD. I just need to transfer my zip from one computer to another. Cloud storage won't work either.
