Cannot access my backup files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    My computer was once victim to a serious virus and had my computer wiped. Most of the files were saved but now as I try access them it comes up with the message "Access denied" or "You do not have permission to access that file". I have tried running as Administrator but it says "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it". Pictures however do not come up with an error, but rather just display themselves as red x's.

    I would very much appreciate any help at all. These files have been sitting there for quite some time and just taking up a lot of space.

    Thanks again.

  • when you say "most of the files were saved" , do you mean you had done windows back up ?? if so what are the other files that are not accessible apart from picture files ?
