Mine is a somewhat related problem. After failing to boot from my C drive, doing a low-level reformat, reloading WinXP (SP2), I am having a difficulty with my second hard drive. The folder on it named "My Documents" cannot be access. Clicking to open
the file gives "F:\My Documents is not accessable. Access is denied."
Properties for that folder indicate 0 files, although the total disk usage indicates the files in that folder are really still there.
I suspect a permissions problem as this folder had been set to be hidden from other users, and I am now probably an "other" user.
I should be able to take ownership, however the security tab does not show up. I am logged in as the only use with administrator priviledges.
I have seen error messages hinting the the file may be "in use".
Does anyone have any sugegstion how I can proceed to gain access to my data? Help!!!
