I want to move all files from an ntfs formatted hard drive which was
previously used for download storage under XP to a 200gb hard drive
formatted ext3 under kanotix.
Some files won't allow deletion even though I tried with both Krusader
and MidnightCommander as root.
Ownership and user show as root.
When I try to delete files using MC I get a message " read-only file
system (error 30)"
I'm assuming that this has to do with XP.
If I try chmod I get the same message.
How can I delete such files without either using XP or re-formatting
Eventually I will reformat the drive but I'd like to know for future
reference if there is a fix for this problem
