    I have tried all possible combinations of chmod but I still cannot access one partition of my hard drive where I keep all my data. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.


    I have to boot up Puppy Linux to change the permissions. Then after I boot up Windows 8 to play WoW, and come back to Ubuntu, I am locked out of that data partition again. Has this got anything to do with the way Windows 8 takes ownership of the partition?

    Did you try with Ubuntu live cd to change rights?

    I usually use that to make a Bash Script executable.

    My recommendation is to end the whole command with "-v" for Verbose output. It will tell you the permissions you started with and what it changed to.
