  1. Hey guys,

    My Windows XP Media Center Edition crashed (cannot boot up) and since my laptop did not come with the original Windows installer, I installed WIndows XP Home Edition (from my previous laptop) instead.

    My problem is I cannot access my personal folders/files which were created in my previous OS (XP MCE). It's always giving me Access Denied message.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    Thanks for the quick response Ididmyc600. I checked but I don't have the simple file sharing button in windows explorer of windows xp home edition. Any other way to disable it? Thanks.
