A coworker says they 'lost' their Mac laptop drive and had no backup of media files. He gave me the drive. I would like to recover the media he wants.
I connected the drive and gparted describes it as having 3 partitions:
a fat32 EFI, and two hfs+ partitions called Macintosh HD & Recovery HD.
I can mount the partition hfs+ partition 'Macintosh HD'
mount -t hfsplus /dev/sdb2 /mac
but get a permission denied message trying to open or copy the folders that look like media.
I do not want to write to the drive by changing the file permissions.
Is there a way for me to copy folders from this drive without changing the permissions of the folders?
