Access denied to Named Folder

  1. I have been given an old hard drive by my sister. Before I use it she would like her pictures cut to CD. I have tried to access her folder but get an error message. "An error occurred while trying to share data. Access is denied" The shared resource was not created at this time.
    What can I do to get around this. I am using XP Home as was my sister, and U have her user name and passwords.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You need to take ownership of the files/folders etc. See HERE for instructions.
