View Full Version : Cant Access Folder

08-08-2006, 08:40 PM
Hi all

I got a slight(understatement) problem. I recently re-formatted my C drive. I also have a D drive which had a folder, which as administrator(i'm the only user of this comp), I denied access, via properties/security, to all to stop anyone who uses the computer from accessing it. Contains account info etc. This was fine as when I wanted access to it I just went properties, security, and uncheck all the deny boxes and so on it went.

Now after reformatting, I am unable to change the status of the folder and get the following message "You do not have permission to view or edit the current permission settings for ...., but you can take ownership or change auditing settings"

Is there a way I can reaccess these files?
