I've posted on this forum a few times and they usually have the answer to a question no one has been able to answer. How do i remove privacy from my user name on a HDD? i was using windows XP home and for some reason i decided to put privacy on my user names files/ folders on the computer, I have now switched computers twice and have had to change the permissions on the file everytime as i still wish to keep the files and its my largest HDD and im changing once again, its tedious any advice? Im switching to a computer running windows XP Professional OS. Eltora digital AMD processor if that makes a difference. (temporary computer) Any advice would be greatly appreciated thank-you.
