    my nas failed so I upgraded the drive and got it running again the file system on the share drive is xfs, file copy is super slow so I switched the drive back out and hooked it up so a machine running ubuntu and copied everything back over.

    problem is that everytime I try to access the files I get permission denied contact me for help, so I try the various options within windows and get nowhere. take the drive out and back into linux and it wont let me change to everyone either.

    so short of copying it all back out to a windows drive then sending it back over the network at 1mb per sec for 1.3tb I'm stumped.

    all suggestions appreciated
