  1. Hi..hope someone can help. I had to replace my desktop but I was able to salvage the HHDs. The C: HDD which boots windows and has the document setting folder (on the old desktop) was installed as a USB drive in the new desktop and now became drive M:.

    When I try to access my folder with my name (which holds all my info) I get "M:\documents and settings\john is not accessible" access denied"

    I need to get all my files and transfer them into my new system.....HEEEEELP!!!

    By the way I followed the instructions on right clicking folder then security then advanced....nothing with "owner" tab comes up for the folder.
