i use acronis backup & recovery 10 for creating system immages .
everything worked fine untill i kept using windows 7.
recently i formatted system hd and installed ubuntu.
the problem is that now i want toroll back since i'm a dummy in linux, and i tried to boot acronis boot cd, succesfully.
the problem is that when i try to locate the backup under local folder---> d: (data hd)
it ask me for a password, wich i don't know.

In Windows, take ownership of the drive and reset the permissions for "Everyone". Also, you could get another hard drive and copy all the files from ubuntu to that drive or use a program such as "Get Data Back" in Windows. The last option will cost you $29 or $39 for the program.
