- The map: I have a dual-booted laptop, Windows 7 alongside Ubuntu 14.04. For Ubuntu, I have a separate partition, which stores my data.
- The enemy:
sudo chown -R hadoopuser /, which literally took down my entire base.
I installed Ubuntu again, overwriting my old installation. However the partition with the data is still there, I can see the data, but I can not for example create a folder there, since the message "you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions." appears at the bottom of the folder. From properties, I can see that the Owner is
- Act like Alexander The Great: Assault the data partition, kill the
user #1001, or at least make negotiations, so that I, user
gsamarascan use this partition as a place to save my documents, etc..
- Act like a Spartan: Annihilate the data partition and extend Ubuntu's partition, so that it will take over that space.
What would you suggest me to do? It will be very helpful if you could point on how to implement the suggestion you made.
I found this question "You are not the owner..." message when trying to access folder, but I cannot relate.
