im using windows xp home edition
i copy the entire hard drive to an external hard drive because i was gonna do a clean install.
well Clean install was a success.
Now my problem is:
i need to get a couple of files on that external drive, i go into the external drive, documents and settings / owner / i get access denied
i tried to take ownership of the file, i restarted in safe mode took ownership of the folder once i restart i still get the access denied file.\
i need help to somehow reset the restrictions, make it public, so i could have access to the folder, is there any other way to do it without taking ownership of the folder?
I suggest we try the methods in the article below:
