    If it is your machine, your hardware and you have admin rights why not just take control of the files?

    But any NTFS capable linux platform will allow you to mount the NTFS partition and copy the data off of that partition. They cannot change the permissions because most of them mount in read-only. But you can easily take permissions with the administrator account.

    if your live cd mounts your ext3 partation as read only just remount it
    example

    hda1 - ntfs
    hda2 - ext3

    mkdir /mnt/hda2
    mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 rw -t ext3

    mkdir /mnt/hda1
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 -t ntfs

    bam.. your ntfs is read only being write support is still alittle hit or miss.. and your ext3 partition is writeable.

    happy recovery

    My guess is that the live cd automounts the ext3 partition as ro (read-only), so you just need to remount it as rw (read-write). Assuming that the ext3 partition is hda1 and that it's currently mounted at /mnt/hda1
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /mnt/hda1
