If the other answers don't help you out, as a last option you could write a small bash script that automatically gives you full permissions and ownership of just all files in your shared folder. You still would have to launch this one command manually, but you could avoid typing it for each file separately. Maybe there is also the possibility to make the ...

I am not sure how your directory is shared on your network. If it is using Samba, edit the smb.conf and add the following two lines in the definiton of your share: [yourshare] ... force user = yourusername force group = yourgroup ... Hope this helps.

I have already written about data recovery here: Recovering Very Important Lost Data From Ntfs Partition Have a look here as well http://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery and here http://forensicswiki.org/wiki/Tools:Data_Recovery First of all, if you lost an important file, stop using the file system the file was on NOW. The data you lost might still ...

I think the problem is related to the Ubuntu side cause the shared directory doesn't have enough permission. Since any files which is created in the directory has parent-child relation permission feature So it's a good chance to change umask of the directory. Due to the wikipedia, In computing, umask is a command that determines the settings of a ...

You should be able to do it with the --no-preserve flag in cp cp --no-preserve=ownership source destination edit: That will still have weird permissions (owner will be the user calling cp though). This will probably work better when copying from ntfs: cp --no-preserve=ownership,mode source destination That will match it to the bitmask of the folder ...

I've been dual-booting Windows 10 preview for 3 months now: no problems whatsoever in BIOS mode... (Nu UEFI here!)

If you use OS-Uninstaller is performs a complete wipe of the entire partition. This means all data on that partition will be deleted. If there is any data you wish to save you can back it up prior to removing windows. I would suggest mounting the windows partition and use your file browser in Ubuntu to copy desired files into your home folder.

I solved the problem using the GNU Parted. Other methods of recovering are mentioned at Ubuntu Documentation. Advantage of choosing GNU Parted : No need to download it, it is included in Ubuntu base.

I yould go about it in these steps: Boot the Ubuntu Live CD sudo apt-get install testdisk Run testdisk, and try to recover the partition from there. Probably Windows just removed the partition definition from the partition table, which will take just a few seconds for testdisk to fix. Then grub should also work automagically. If the problem's worse, ...

From the WineHQ - About Wine page: Wine began in 1993 under the initial coordination of Bob Amstadt as a way to support running Windows 3.1 programs on Linux.

The native file system for Linux (Ubuntu) is ext4, which Windows does not support. Ubuntu can read and write to NTFS but with some limitations. So, what effectively happens is that Ubuntu can read Windows files but Windows cannot read Ubuntu files. So, the best thing I think, would be to have a separate FAT32 partition to share files between both OSes. ...

I think you got it all. An ssd with 240gb wouldn't hurt for dual boot. The additional 1tb HDD is a must have. Install all your software there. However I recommend resize the 1tb HDD to 50% and create a Linux partition from Ubuntu on the empty part. Like: WinPrograms and LinuxPrograms.

OK, you want a 3 Partition Drive. 2 OS and 1 Data. The first thing you need to do is understand one thing. Windows and Linux has programs that only work with those OS' natively on the partition the OS is installed on. So now that is covered. You need to back your data up on the Partition you are wanting the Data Drive to be on. This will ensure ...

You can't resize sda2 partition while it's in use. You need to boot your computer using a live USB or DVD Ubuntu, and then start Partition Manager GParted to shrink sda2 to the right, creating necessary free space (20gb?) to create a new partition (ntfs) for Windows. Beware that your grub2 bootloader will be replaced with Windows boot manager and you won't ...

You'll never really know how any different linux distribution will run on your computer until you download a live ISO, put it on a dvd/usb, and try it out.

Lubuntu Try Ubuntu-tweak It can be done during the install process, with minimal intervention. This is something that will take time, and depends on the use-case, so it's hard to give a good answer. Not if you're switching from Windows, no. (You can select it as your accepted answer, possibly?)

You need to make sure you have GRUB_DEFAULT=saved in your grub config (which is autogenerated, you change this part of it by editing /etc/default/grub). sudo update-grub to make the changes active and then use sudo grub-reboot $1. grep -i "menuentry '" /boot/grub/grub.cfg Will give you the menuentries that you can cut-paste in for $1.

This is strange. I suggest you apply the 512 error fix. Maybe you have an UEFI PC and GRUB is struggling to determine what kind of bootloader to install on USB.

But whatever USB flash I use - with NTFS or FAT32 or EXT4 I keep seeing people recommend using a specific filesystem on USB drive. Wrong! WinUSB formats it. It doesn't care about your previous filesystem. The size of iso file is 4.3Gb, but that shouldn't be a problem for NTFS or EXT4. It has nothing to do with EXT4. The USB drive will be NTFS if ...

If the Win8.1 is 64bit I understood (reading results from a Google Search) that you need at least 8GBs. And obviously NTFS, not FAT.

You may have to format it as ntfs. Do sudo apt-get install gparted (skip this step if you already have it installed) then format it as ntfs.

I assume you have Windows (maybe 8?) installed on your 4th partition (which is /dev/sda4 to Linux). Windows uses hibernation to fasten up its boot, but therefore stores RAM data and other stuff to its partition on the hard disk. This leads to your errors as Ubuntu can not properly access the drive due to Windows' lock. Boot into WIndows and disable the ...

There is a mayor flaw: Stripe across one SSD and two HDDs. Why?? To slow down the SSD and raise the risk of data loss? Stripe or RAID0 is meant to increase performance among the same type of drives or the slowest member. Take two slow drives and RAID0 will give you a bit better performance. Take one slow and one fast drive, the load is distributed even ...

Yes, as @Mudit said different os uses different file structure. The different file structure which uses different the size of space for storaging files. The windows os uses NTFS partition and The linux os uses ext3 or ext4 partition. so you can find that the same file shows different sizes in different operating systems.

I've had to recover files from inaccessible partitions, or that have been deleted, on a number of occasions and have always found Testdisk and Photorec to be invaluable and reliable.

To expand on whatever you missed in the original answer... they ARE exactly the same size. The sizes are being displayed using different metrics. The units they are counting are different. In the post you linked in a comment the person answering even mentions how you can get the "du" command in linux to display using the same metric as windows is using ...

You are likely to have lost a lot of files because you have overwritten much of the drive (40Gig is a lot). First you'll need to create a partition on the rest of the device, but don't put a file system on it. This is easily done in the "Disks" utility. Then do the following to see a list of files you can recover: sudo ntfsundelete <device> Then ...

Yes but you need WINE https://www.winehq.org/ I recommend latest Development version 1.7.34 (since you said programs are old there is high change they will work great with WINE) for Ubuntu and for Windows if they don't run at first try enabling compability mode but I haven't yet needed to do that so I think you wouldn't too.

You might try opening up a terminal and running: sudo dhclient A lot of these public wifi spots use weird hacky ways to get that portal screen to pop up and I find that Linux often does not automatically get an IP address. Running that command should basically request a new IP from the DHCP server at Starbucks. Usually that does the trick for me.

julka is right, you have to put the Ubuntu (weak systems: better lubuntu or xubuntu) installation files onto a physical drive and boot your machine from it.
