    ok i have an archive of an os, where at that time it was installed on a second hard disk. i have changed some things around in my case and now there's only the one hard disk. when i try to boot the os i've mentioned, it won't boot because i imagine the boot information is wrong.

    i have a file explorer program that can see and allow changes in the hidden isr folders - i figure if i delete the boot folder from that snapshot and replace it with another boot folder from a snapshot that was installed since i changed to only one hard disk, it will work again.

    the trouble is i cant delete the boot folder in that isr folder, i get an error "access is denied" does anyone know how i might approach taking full ownership of the folder so i can do this? thanks!

    I am confused. You say Archive and you can't boot to it. You can't not boot to archives, only to snapshots. I am still not sure what you are trying to do.

    hi pete - i restored the archive to a snapshot. getting the snapshot to boot though, requires me to modify a folder in the snapshot-- i have a program that can access isr files, but im getting a permission denied error when i try to modify the boot folder (i am booted into a completely other snapshot, so im trying to alter the boot folder of an inactive snapshot. if theres no way to modify it i guess i can just dump the snapshot no big deal

    I gather the archive wasn't from the snapshot currently on the disk. Unless someone else has an idea you may have to dump it and start over

    Your welcome. If it's nothing critical indeed it would be wiser to just start fresh.

    did you try stopping the isrservice ?
    That usually allows full access to the snapshot files.

    From Cmd line or in can try in Admin tools> services
