The thing to google: XP TAKE OWNERSHIP. Then do what you read about: take ownership. In XP Home you have to boot in Safe Mode, but that's not necessary in XP Pro, I think.
Somehow, I forgot my password then I recovered my computer (Not completely) The old files are still in the C: Drive but they are not visible. One of the old folders has 4GB worth files in it but when I click on it, it's empty. So, my question is, how can I recover the data in those folders?
I'm running Windows XP pro.
I really appreciate your help.
