Re: Can't get old Windows drive access
No, it's not. That password works for sudo and other things, but not root. And if you read up, you'll see that Ubuntu keeps the root password secret.
Anyhow, I finally solved the problem. By formatting the partition NTFS instead of ext_. Then I went into Nautilus to delete the protected directories on my sda6... I must have done something else stupid, for it deleted the directory listings but did not free up the space (nothing got moved to Trash).
So I have access to my files, but still have a fairly full sda6 partition. Any ideas here?
Every time I hear the word "Progress" my fur bristles!
