I need to overwrite these files but I no longer have access to via Windows because of the way it has been setup. I'm attempting to use Ubuntu which boots live from a USB flash drive, however my changes are not persistent when I restart the system. The odd thing is, I seem to be able to write files, like a blank text file to the project folder, but I cannot overwrite the files. Is there something I can do to enable me to have full write access using ubuntu without installing the ubuntu OS? As always, any advice is appreciated.
