  • Right click on files and folder which you want to acces then select properties|Security|Edit|Add|Advanced|Find Now| "select User" Administrator| "Click Ok" and now click on Apply. Or Right click on Drive and select Properties then Security Tab now see under "Group or User Names" should  be there Authenticated Users, System, Administrator (Username- PC\Administrator ), User (Username- PC\User ) if any user is missing then install which user is missing by clicking Add.. Tab.

  • Which folders are you trying to access? What about the folders on other partitions? I would like to explain that in Windows 7 RC we do not have permission to access some system folders and junctions. If you could not open them it is normal situation.
