    Hmmmm. Not exactly sure. I have Formated my C Drive many times and can still access my D Drive. . . which is also where I keep 90% of my important files and whatnot. Anyone else know?

    What was your previous OS? was it WinNT... . and was the drive C: or D: NTFS ? i had this problem in WinNT, it gave me the same error. i had to take ownership of the files and folders before it would let me access the previously stored files and folders

    yes NTFS thats the problem
    take ownership of the files
    • Right click the file
    • Select the security Tab
    • Select Advanced
    • Select Owner
    • Find the User or group you wish to give ownership to and select
    • Click apply


    don't forget to log in as Administrator or with Admin rights because only Administrator can take ownership of any file

    hope this helps

    --Good Luck--

    I will explain the procedure again
    To take ownership of a folder:
    1. Right-click the folder you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
    3. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
    4. In the Name list, click your user name, Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
    5. Click OK. The following message appears, where folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of:
    You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?

    All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.

    Click Yes.
    6. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.
