  1. Due to problems I stated here http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic97371.html
    I need to get my old files off a hard drive to a different one. I took the old hard drive out and put it into a different computer. It works fine but I cant see my documents folder says i do not have permission how do i get around this?

    I wonder if you could boot off a cd/floppy and copy the files to a flash drive.. That is weird. I have done what you are trying to do more than a few times and never had that problem.. I am going to check some stuff I think I have on this and post back in a bit...

    You have to boot your system in safemode and login as Administrator to get that Security tab, change ownership and you should be good to go...
