comment Microsoft Access Database (.mdb) corrupted after backup on ubuntu server
"Maybe something to do with it being put into an uncompressed .tar folder", not really, but there is one simple way to find out: run md5sum on the original file, back it up, extract it, and check the md5sum again. It darn well should be identical.

comment Use Parted to change a partition's flag state
I don't know how you managed to install Ubuntu on the ssd like that because the installer won't set up the disk that way and it doesn't even look at all valid so I don't know how it even works when you force it. I think you need to just start over and reinstall properly.

@crysis405, in that case just use parted on the command line to blow it away instead of gparted.

comment Install without cd or usb
@DrugCrazedRebel, unless you have an EFI system, the livecd boots with syslinux rather than grub, and iirc, it was F6 to edit the kernel command line from the syslinux menu. Just add the world "toram". And no, you don't run dd after having booted the livecd in ram, you do that on another pc to MAKE the "livecd" in the HD so you can transfer it back to the machine with no cdrom.

@crysis405, you don't use pvremove to delete the partition... click on it in gparted and pick delete.

comment Location of Microphone input?
@PopSmith, odd... the -t wav switch in your original command seems to be request wav instead of raw.

@VolkerSiegel, umm... because he's asking about fat and ntfs, not ext4?

comment Moving KVM data to my home folder
Question makes no sense. "KVM data" doesn't really mean anything since kvm is just a virtual machine technology. qemu uses it to provide fast virtual machines and it can use image files wherever you want.
