So after following this thread I successfully transferred all files onto a new hard drive. (Thanks to the 3 step terminal command provided) I did not want to run sudo nautilus and risk destructing the documents I need. But now that I have a copy of the whole hard drive I can mess with it and try whatever. I did run sudo chown WarrenBowling300.WarrenBowling300 * but everything it showing up as a blank text file. What do I do?
The directory to the file is (if it helps): Seagate/WarrenBowling300/Back-up/Backups.backupdb/(then various dates I backed up)
Thanks for the help
