I have just one partition with all my data on it. I want to change it's permission to allow any user to change, create and delete files and to be able to do that through LiveCD.

Also even after formatting the file system of the partition, I still want to be able to use my files after installing another system.

I tried to change permissions by running Nautilus as root but after logging in to the LiveCD, I still found my files locked.


Try using the terminal command chmod 777 /path/to/folder/or/file.
