Hi, Having an issue with a windows box, so I figured I'd install a parallel system and backup the data. On the original, the directory is "private". When I go to access it from the new partition, I get "access is denied". I tried what is suggested in http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-8862-Accessing-a-private-folder.html , to no avail. Is there any way to access this info from XP? Thanks, J.
