My hard disk (boot sector) is blown but the partition with my data in is good.
When I loasd up Ubuntu 13:05 LiveDisk, and move to my data partition, I notice that I have no access to the files and the permissions say that the files are owned by
OK, I found "Ubuntu Hardware Partitions: How to Set Ownership of Drive or Partition (Internal & External Hard Disks)" Followed the instructions very carefully but the system would not recognise 1000-user#1000 - it may have been the hash sign it doesn't like?
Can anyone shed some light on this as I would like to get my data back before dumping the hard drive.
If it is any help. I have moved the damaged disk to bay 1 from Bay 0 and have a new drive in Bay 0 (which won't at present load Ubuntu - but I'm not worried about that at present.
