My Macbook Pro hard drive is not working and I don't have a backup cd. I installed Ubuntu to see if I could access my files. I can see the folders but when I attempt to open them, I get a message that I do not have permission to view them. How can I get the required permission?
I tried Right Click >> Properties >> Permissions and the drop down menus are grey so I don't have the option to change them to read and write. Is there anything I can do to access the files?
