Hello,

I reformatted but there are still files on an account I cannot access.

I try to get to it by going in Documents and Settings folder but to no avail.

"Access is denied"

"I reformatted but there are still files on an account I cannot access"

Reformatting completely erases data from the HDD or partition. I don't know what you did, but you didn't reformat.

Well as mickliq said it wasn't format. You can't format from Windows anyway. Hopefully you didn't format something important.

I suspect you need to google "taking ownership of files" to deal with the access denied message but to be sure tell us EXACTLY what you did and why.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
