Why and what I am trying to do:
I am unable to copy some files from my old hard disk. The old hard-disk has windows installed, but they are crashing and I am unable to start them. On the same computer on a second hard disk I have Ubuntu installed. I am trying from inside the Ubuntu to copy the files over so that I can format the hard disk. Now I have successfully copied folders like "Downloads" and "Desktop" but folders in the main hard disk like xampp htdocs folder, I am unable to copy for some reason.
What I have tried:
I have made
chmod 777 -r for the entire hard disk in order to make sure permission is not an issue.
I have launched
gksu nautilous utility with admin permission from Ubuntu
The error I get for some files:
Error splicing file:Permission denied.
fdisk -l output
