    locked folder

    I have a drive that a friend is having difficulty accessing- I ran a fix to be able to access the drive (it was ticking) he had linux type files on it- I have an ubuntu 10.04 loaded on a PC- i attached his drive to it to try to recover his files.... I can see the folder, but when I try to open it, it tells me that I dont have authorization to access it. How should I proceed to access the folder?

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 2.1 is the server the drive was on.....

    Hi and Welcome !

    Press Alt+F2 and type this
    gksu nautilus
    Above code will launch Nautilus with root privileges.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
