  1. I need to (for recovery purposes) mount an NTFS partition so I can copy files off of it to an external drive using ubuntu.

    How do I mount the drive so I can read it while running the live CD?
    It says I don't have permissions to view it when i tell it to mount it...

    You will find that a Knoppix live CD,or EBCD,

    or the Ultimate Boot CD,or Trinity Rescue CD,

    are easier to copy off files with.

    If you still want to use Ubuntu,there is a page HERE
     
  3. That's an old thread.

    The latest release does mount your NTFS partitions. Which version of Ubuntu do you have?

    I did it on a laptop not 2 weeks ago, using Gutsy and just plugging in an external HDD and moving all the clients Windows stuff across.

    I didn' have to do anything, basically. I'm pretty sure Fiesty is the same.
