Re: Problem with folder permissions (I think)
Keep an eye on it. It could be the same problem I had when I would suddenly get errors about read-only filesystem when I would try to cp or download a file.
Although, if you were using sudo to cp files or doing other things as root, it is possible that files ended up with root ownership.
My Linux system is at the far end of a 1 TB drive, and apparently due to some occasional drive errors, the system would spontaneously remount "/" as read-only (everything is in one partition).
After that happened a few times in 12.04, I ran sudo e2fsck -pc /dev/sda4 from 11.10 on my SSD sdb1, and the problem has not reoccurred yet. But I did purchase a new drive and eSata/USB drive caddy and intend to copy everything over to the new drive soon.
