The 'My Documents' folder is located on an alternative drive to the operating system, drive H:\.
In the 'Sharing' options for this folder, I had the 'Make Private' option set to true but no password enabled (I have no idea why I did this as the machine is neither connected to the internet nor shared with other people, but I think it is relevant to the problem).
Some days later I reinstalled (NOT repaired) the operating system (Windows XP SP2).
When I try to open the folder I get the message 'Access Denied' whether I try from command prompt or Windows Explorer.
Upon reinstallation of the O/S I gave a different user name than in the previous installation - could this be the problem?
Can anyone tell me how to access my locked folder?
