While you could try TAKE OWNERSHIP (see google) of these files, for simple transfers like this we only need to copy the files so they are not locked up inside this format.
I have a Gateway 836GM running on XP Media Center edition (version 2002) with SP3. It has roughly 225GB of space on the hard drive, 1gb ram, and a Pentium D 2.8ghz processor. Here is the issue that I am having:
I needed to reimage my compute about two weeks ago, and used the Files and Settings transfer wizard on windows XP to save my photos, files, mp3's, ect. I set the path to save the files to my external hard drive, and then proceeded to reimage the computer once I saw that the files were successfully transfered to the external. When I tried to reinstall the files on the computer, after reimaging, using the files and settings transfer wizard, I get the following error message:
"The location that you specified does not contain stored information. Please type a valid folder path into the edit box.
If you entered a path to a folder on a removable disk, the disk must be in the drive."
I have tried everything that I can think of to try to get the data back. I really don't understand the issue, as the computer is recognizing my drive, and when I open the folder that the data is stored in, I see 5 files: one called Status that is only 1KB, and the other 4 are IMG00001,IMG00002, IMG00003, and IMG00004 which are all roughly 2gb, and DAT files. I have done this process a number of times before, and have always been successful, but for some reason it is not working this time.
Please HELP. All of my photos and word documents are on that drive.
Thank you in advance.
