    I have the trial version of acronis true image workstation build 9.1

    I have backed up information from a linux server.

    However I restored the information to my windows pc and the information is all there (this was a test) however now I am unable to move to new location or delete the new folder?

    I have all standard settings.

    why is this?

    Do you have the necessary permissions to delete the folder?

    I am administrator on my pc. where the files have been restored too

    machine is win xp Sp2

    however the read-only box is marked when i untick this i get an error message come up:

    An error occured applying attributes to the file:
    c:/ location of folder file.co

    access is denied

    And then it is the same for all files from the restore?

    Ideas welcome?

    Is it because the permissions from linux have been attributed to the fileso_O

    Hi paul,

    Having Admin rights on your PC will not give you access to individual files or folders that have restricted access rights on them.

    So it is very possible that your assumption is correct.

    so if I was log in as super user on a linux machine this should solve the problems when backed up on a windows machine?

    Any help from others posters would be appreciated?

    Hello Marat

    I find your suggested solution interesting.

    Have you actually tested whether this solution works with restricted access files that have originated on a Linux machine?

    If it did work that would be a surprising and very interesting result. If it does not work then what relevance is there to the question asked by Paul?

    T.
