|My computer crashed a few months ago when it caught the "Windows XP Pro" virus. I took it to a professional to be repaired. He fixed it by creating another hard disk and created an icon for the old hard disk with all of my original programs, documents and folders. Now I can't open a lot of Word docs and a lot of folders. I get "access denied". I took it back to the repair shop and they "unlocked" them. I was able to access about half of the documents etc., but there are still folders within folders that still give me the "access denied". I informed the repairman about this and he said that he unlocked all that he could and that the rest of the stuff is just corrupted. I feel that he just didn't want to deal with it anymore since he already took my $$. Is there a way to unock these folders and documents? I have a lot of research papers and reports for nursing school that are very valuable to me. Can anyone help??? |
P.S. I do have an external drive now. I have backed up everything, even the folders and documents that give me the "access denied" message.
