hi,
i have a notebook with 2 hard drives, one for the system and one for data
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.
i never set a passwordto the archive, nor i encrypted it. i tried windows 7 pass but didn't work.
what should i do? my backup is in d: togheter with all my installers and iso... now i'm using ubuntu but gives me alot oftrouble!
help!

edit:

d: is visible under ubuntu, with all the files and folder i had before, with ntfs filsystem.

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.
