Solved I need help with Windows XP user accounts

July 13, 2012 at 12:00:20
Specs: Windows XP
I have an admin account and two limited accounts ( I know all passwords ), I want to set up a limited account to be able to view the second limited account's documents, I have given the first account permission to go into the second accounts documents and make changes but it still says "access is denied". can I set it up so I can access the second account's documents from a limited account?

I found my problem I was doing these security changes to user 2's documents from my computer from the admin's account I had to go directly to the actual file and change it there (C:\Documents and Settings)

Try setting the permissions to Full Control for the user you using to access the other. Are you still getting "Access is denied"?

I have already done that I and I went into "advanced" and made sure everything was checked for the first user. Will taking ownership work, if it does will it lock the second user out of it's documents?

I think taking ownership will work, as long as you grant the correct permissions.
