Pull up google.com type in TAKE OWNERSHIP XP and you should find out how to get into the file system.
Windows seems to have crashed on my friends hard drive to i've connected it to my computer as a slave drive to my hard drive. I was hoping this way I could backup the stuff from his hard drive onto mine and then reboot and restore his computer, but I can't access his My Documents folder, because is says Documents and Settings is not accessible - Access denied. I know the password, but it wont let me type it in. Thanks for any help.
