Denied access to documents

Recommended Posts

Hi there all, its been a while since posting on the atomic forums.....but ive got myself an urgent matter at hand!

 

I have a customers' computer that BSOD's, and windows recovery wont work :( So im just trying to get My Documents off the Hard Drive on my computer now, but ..:\Documents and Settings\xxxx is not accessible, Access is denied. I know its got something to do with permissions and security settings but to no avail...

 

If i dont get the ladies documents off it, my professionalism is at stake! noooooo

 

Any post back would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

What you have to do is take ownership of the folder and all sub-folders. Once you have ownership you can then copy, delete what ever you need to.
