NTFS Mount with RW Permissions from a Linux Live CD? (Data Recovery Related)
Posted on 2006-10-23
Whenever I try to browse my 'D' drive in Windows, it gives an error message saying that it's not formated. However: I can access it with the SLAX live CD.
The default hard drive mounts come with the 'read only' permission, and I need to copy the data from that drive to another drive, either by mounting a drive with 'read/write' or by any other way to do it. And there are large files there, so it has to be NTFS.
After what I've read, it's difficult to mount an NTFS partition with the 'read/write' permission, and especially on a live CD, and I don't know of any other ways to get my data, except from installing a Linux distribution on another drive, which is also an option if the live CD fails.
So what's the easiest way to get the data? Mounting with RW from a live CD (and how)? Or any other way by using a live CD? Or what's the most lightweight Linux distribution which is able to copy the data?
