how should i get the my files back , as they are encrypted in laptop having windows vista..
Assuming both systems are working, first decrypt them where the are,
get both attached to the same router
setup Print/File sharing
copy from one to the other
If the system are remote from one another, after the decrypt, copy them to a USB thumbdrive which can then be moved to the other location.
I have a LENOVO R 61 model 7743 with Windows Vista Bussiness Edition. My computer fan was running really slow, so I decided to service the system. I backed up my files onto my 1TB Seagate External Hard Drive using cut copy paste. Once everything was backed up, and i get laptop serviced , I installed windows 7 . When I went to copy my old files from my external hard drive, data canot be paste, When I tried to copy or try to open them , I got an error saying " 'file name': Access Denied.
i shocked , i should i recover my data again.
this is an ownership problem; see this
I have done all this procedure you have which written. but i was unable to open the any file. only one message is coming access denied in all files, whether it is word file, excel file, PDF file , JPEG file..
Kindly help me to sort out this problem . some of file are very important for me.
ok, I need to see what exists in order to fix the permissions.
a) what user-id are you logging in as; this is the id we need to fix
b) you need the ADMIN id (or the permissions) to make the correction
* get a command prompt
* cd %userprofile%
(copy/paste the current directory name in your followup reply)
* then cd to the directory in which you are having problems
(copy/paste the name too)
* now show me ONE file that gives you a problem
using DIR whatever filename and copy paste that data
* now report the NTFS perms for that same file
cacls filename >.NTFS.perms.log notice the leading dot on the NTFS
open .NTFS.perms.log with notepad,
copy/paste all that content
standing bye . . . .
