View Full Version : Can't access my old files

16-01-2005, 10:04 PM
Recently, I just re-installed my windows. I added to a few accounts to it. The problem is that they are some saved files in my old account. When i click on my computer > documents and setting, I can't access to my previous account. My previous account was locked by a password. All other accounts that were not locked could still be acessed.
Can someone teach me how to access it? Or are the files lost for good ?

I am presuming you are using Xp and your present user account has administrator privlages
you say you reinstaled, did this involve a format of your C:\ ?
did you have my documents repathed to another drive/partion ?
Are you able to see the folder in C:\documents and settings\<Your Old User Name> ?
please post the answers
