Lost access to My Documents folder



Last night i reinstalled my Windows XP, i have 2 partitions on my disk , my documents folder is on my drive D, This folder is set to be private.Now when i tried to access this folder (even as administrator) i get a access denied message. So if anybody knows how to solve this problem please help me!.:mad:
Try backing up the affected folder and then restoring it to an alternate location w/o the security features.
Yes it worked, but by any chance do you know how to delete the old My Documents and thanks again
That one I'm not sure about. You can try this. Open Windows explorer> tools> folder options> 'view' tab> scroll all the way to the bottom and untick 'use simple file sharing.' After that, right click on the folder> properties> 'security' tab> 'advanced' button> 'owner' tab. Try changing 'ownership' and see what you see. Other then that i'm not sure what to suggest.
Well, this was the real thing, you know, now i have full access to my documents and i have no need to delete it. thank you.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
