  1. Hey! I have done System Restores for a long time and one thing I have learned is whenever I do it, it somehow leaves behind my music... but I just did a restore recently and found I can't access my C:/Documents and Settings/Owner.....

    A message appears saying Access is denied. Any help? Thanks Wilders !!! :D
     
  2. Basically I need to find a program to find Files I am looking for?

  4. Well I don't know if you are being sarcastic or not but I am not thick lol... I downloaded a Active Recover or something and I could see the contents of the folder with My Music in it and it had all the music there. I tried searching for it though by Start > Search and even made sure in "More Advanced Options" I ticked Search Hidden Folders and System Folders. :)

    no, sorry i wasnt being sarcastic, its just usually with me its the simplist things with computers that solve my problems.

    As im always looking for overly complicated solutions when something easy fixes it in a fraction of the time.

    Sorry i couldnt think of something better to solve your problem

    If you use a limited account on Windows XP, you can't access Documents and settings\Owners as that belongs to the Owner (an administrator account). You would have to login as "Owner" (without the quotes) and copy your music from there to your Folder on your current limited account user name Documents and settings\You (Where you is the account that you use).
