|a power outage "semi fried" both hard drives on our computer. i say semi fried because the computer would not recognize them when attached to the internal IDE cable, but would in an external hdd enclosure with a usb 2.0 connection. however, the "my documents" folder on my wife's side will not open due to a write protection. i have tried the following-|
1) went to DOS and ran the attrib function on the folder to remove the read only attributes, among others, and got an "access denied" message
2) rebooted in safe mode and tried to take ownership of the folder in the security tab, but got a message saying that i did not have permission to (and i was logged in as the administrator).
basically, any time i try to touch the folder, i get some sort of access denied message. any guesses?
