Are you unable to change the ownership of your mountable Linux hard drive volumes to make them accessible on LAN? Does the process fail with both root user account and local account? Actually, this behavior occurs if you do not have appropriate permissions to change the ownership of the disk or some significant system files are damaged. Since the system files are damaged, they can not even be accessed by the regular users. This causes grave data loss situation and calls for Linux recovery, if the backup is not updated.
As a practical example of this problem, you may encounter the below error message every time you try to change the ownership of mounted hard drive on Debian Linux operating system based computer:
“debian:/# chown -v ryan:ryan /mnt/hdc1
failed to change ownership of `/mnt/hdc1' to ryan:ryan
chown: changing ownership of `/mnt/hdc1': Operation not permitted
debian:/# chmod -v 777 /mnt/hdc1
mode of `/mnt/hdc1' changed to 0777 (rwxrwxrwx)
debian:/# ls -l /mnt/...

A lot of us use the dual boot systems in which multiple operating systems, such as Windows and Linux, can be accommodated in an effort to get the best of all worlds. Using such systems can be very helpful when you have to test certain software on various platforms. In these systems, you have the option to switch to the particular system at the startup. However, sometimes due to various reasons the system is unable to start. In such situations, you should resort to performing in-place methods to fix the problem. If you are not able to address the situation, then you should use a third-party Linux recovery software to resolve the issue.
Consider a scenario wherein you have converted your system in a dual-boot system with Windows XP and RedHat Linux distribution. While in the Windows system, you accidentally clicked the 'Hibernate' option instead of the 'Shut Down' option. Now, when you start your system you are unable to do so.
