  1. [ubuntu] Re: Password Protecting Windows 10 Partition in Ubuntu 14.04.3

    Actually, that's not really needed.

  4. Re: Every small mistake - I must reinstall Ubuntu ?

    One thing that you need to learn that makes Linux very different from Windows is that you don't go rummaging around for drivers. That's really a bad idea.

  6. [ubuntu] Re: How to clone recovery partition to USB drive

    The problem with relying on a Recovery partition and OEM software is that, once you move or resize the partitions, it typically doesn't work anymore. SO, copying it to an external drive, with the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Defragmenting windows from ubuntu

  10. [SOLVED] Re: Help with grub.cfg invalid signature Windows menuentry

    First of all, you should NEVER hand-edit grub.cfg -- other than to do a temporary test. Why? Because the next time you do an update, that is liable to overwrite grub.cfg and remove all the edits you...

    If the partition your overwrote contained Windows, you will get better results using Windows data recovery apps than Linux apps.
