How to access to Linux folder when using a LiveCD?

Something went wrong with my computer. I want to copy my data folders to a usb drive and reinstall. So I'm using a livecd. However I can't access the folder. Under home/username the username folder shows a no-entry sign. When I use gksu nautilus I get loose the no-entry sign but just find a text file. How do I get access to the files that are there, I think they are encrypted.

How to bypass user account on my computer and g forget my password g want to get access to my file what can g do to retrieve my file


If you know Linux you might be able to access or retrieve your (?) file. How how it goes for Windows based systems.
Use a LiveCD distribution of Linux. Boot the computer with Linux. Do not install it, just run the demo.
Once it is up and running, mount the hard drive of the computer. Use a file explorer to go to where your file is located. Copy it on a USB key. Eject the usb drive. Exit Linux.
You still have to remember your password at some time or other, or reinstall the OS (yes you lose any user files).

How to download games


1. CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.

2. TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."

3. EXIT USB MODE
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.

I have the 1TB WD My book hard drive, and when I try to access some of my folders, it becomes non-responsive. On at least one occasion, I received a pop up suggesting it needs to be formatted...however if...


It sounds like your hard drive is going bad. You would be wise to get as much off of it as possible. You can try to format my guess is you are going to have problems with that drive though.

I have a shared folder with files in it. I disabled one share, then the rest of the shared folders went gone. how will I recover the data in it?


Hi sej_nb5,

A shared folder is only a way to access data files from multiple computers. If you are using the external drive, you will need to go and click on ":My Computer" and then find that drive, It will be called "E drive" or "F drive" in the list, and when you click on that drive you will have access to the entire drive, and you will need to navigate to those folders and files. You can re-share the drive when you get to the folder that you want by right clicking and choosing share.

Good Luck,

Mark

for neerajay.. from what i understand, you cant find your files, so there must be some one that has deleted your data or you forgot where you left it

for both of you.. to find something, try using the search option from the start menu..
if you dont remember the name of the file but know the extension, type in *.doc to find word documents.. *.jpg to find pictures..
then, the results must show something that you can use to get your info back
