I can no longer log into my account even having the correct password. I tried all the suggested advice on the site with no success. I also posted a question and am waiting for a reply. While I fix that issue however, I really need to access my files for work.
I created a new account which is what I'm using now and when I try to access my old account's files it says I cant as I'm not the owner. I'd be happy being able to transfer my files from my old account onto this new one but I'm unsure as to how I could do that.
Is there a way I could change the permissions on my previous account's folder so that I can access and transfer my files onto my new account? When I click on properties on that folder all the settings are blurred out and I cant change anything. I assume the only way to do it is through terminal.
Can someone please guide me on how to do this? I'm not super skilled at using terminal but I do have a little bit of experience with it. I would really appreciate any help you could offer me.
