I am completely new to Linux, installed it around 10 mins ago any my first order of business is to get my HDD working. I have it set up and plugged in or whatever and there is alot of files on it that I can't lose, so reformatting or whatever isn't an option. I need to give it executable permissions so I can run the steam games off of it. How do I do this? I've browsed around other threads and looked at the stuff but some of it seems really complicated to a complete linux noob like myself.
Thanks in advance.
