Just bought a brand new external to back up my windows from ubuntu... since my windows isnt' accessible anymore... The hard drive is read only? I don't understand how it could be if it's brand new? Is there anyway to get the OS to let me into my new external... Also, I'm new to Ubuntu and am hoping you'll have simple instructions to get it to work. C: thank you~
Update: Bad news has come to the windows OS. It seems to be stuck in the start up repair loop... The hard drive is fried at this point.
