I made my Windows 7 hard drive unbootable (don't ask how right now, I was being stupid :P), and am running Ubuntu from a CD to backup the files before I do a system restore. The only problem is, the only files I really care about the most, my Finale .mus files, are hidden. And I try to add read and write permissions from Ubuntu, but they just disappear. I'm pretty sure they did the same thing in Win7, too, which is why they're still hidden. Probably related to those stupid personalized folders. But how do I get around this?? I'm not that familiar with Linux.
