I have been trying to use Photorec, to recover some images off my Digital Camera, without much success. 

What i have managed to recover are a whole host of files(i had to cancel the process before all 70,000 files landed on my desktop)  ; dir.15/f0845058.gif ,recup_dir.15/f0845036.txt,recup_dir.2/f0289280_MSLS31.DLL recup_dir.1/f0272496.png they all seem like temporary browser files.

The problem is i cant not now move or delete them as permission is denied.

I have only one log on and that is administrator.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Basher:

Probably need some more detail than that if you want a hand :)




I hate you.

I have tried;
chown 777 /recup_dir.6
chown 777 /desktop/recup_dir.6
chown 777 recup_dir.6
chown 777 desktop/recup_dir.6

Have also just tried copy and pasting from shortcut.

recup_dir.6 is one of the folder names on the desktop holding all the unwanted files.

The chown command is used to change the owner of the directory, chmod is used to change permissions. You will need to read up on using those 2 commands in linux. I'm hesitant to give instructions here as it is your data and don't want to be responsible for any stuff ups :) It will also be a good learning exercise for you. Once you take ownership of the folders you can move, copy delete rename etc etc. http://ss64.com/bash/ is useful.

Well managed to a bit today, trying to resolve my problem.

 Still cant understand why the chown sudo etc will not recognise the files i want to get rid of by  changing the ownership of the files/directories.

All the information i have read points me to the same place and it never works, just wandering if i need to use root commands with SU to do it?

I have learnt a bit today.  No luck so far.

Try a gui like Gnome Commander if you're having trouble with the command line.

Right, thanks for that i can see now that all the deleted files ive recovered are owned by ROOT, so ill need to find out what my password is for the SU command, i do not remember setting one though.

Ah well makes a bit more sense, will have to have another look at it tomorrow.

Thanks for all your help

Fixed it.

With code

sudo chown user:user /home/user/Desktop/file.

this gave me permission to do move and delete files, then deleted with gnome commander.

Learnt a lot along the way too.

Thanks for your help guys;)
