Cannot access backed up files
« on: March 26, 2004, 08:17:42 PM »
Hello, I recently backed up my whole c: drive onto another partion on my hard drive and reinstalled XP home. After running the backup utility to restore my backup I am unable to access any files that belonged to my administrative user login. (i.e. my documents etc.)

All of the program files went to the right spots, and I can see "Owner" in Documents and Settings, but It says access is denied.

Any Help would Be Greatly Appreciated.


Specs: P4 2.2ghz / 512mb ddr ram / XP Home / 128mb RadeonSE
