Sub_title: explanation

Please consider that i have just started with linux and fatdog64 from a live cd. Could somebody explain the following: After mounting a hard drive containing a windows 7 64-bit operating system from the taskbar icon in fatdog64 and then, under properties, a "lock" check box appears, just exactly what will be locked. Does it lock the win 7 drive only in linux or does it carry over to windows?

Hi frankge,

Welcome to the kennel. And you're forgiven this one time. But you should know for the future that the buttons to post are somewhat ambiguous. To post to a thread, you click the "post replay" button. To start a new thread, you click the "new topic" button. Starting a new topic (a) is less likely to get someone familiar with the puppy version you're using to be aware of your situation; (b) adds to the chaos already endemic on a forum which discusses multiple puplets, applications and caters to users with multiple levels of experience; (c) makes it difficult for future members in a similar situation to find relevant discusssions; and so (d) is considered, rude.

That said, although I'm not running FatDog, I think "lock" means that the drive/partition has been opend "read-only." You can access the files, but not edit them, or create new files on that drive/partition. I suggest that you resubmit your question by posting "a reply" on the FatDog thread.
