|I have two file folders of pictures/docs/mp3s etc on my computer that I would like to access, that are locked. |
I am the administrative account on my computer, the only other account is the default administrative account that comes with the system, so it isn't a matter of password locking, I don't believe. (I have deleted any passwords anyways.)
I can access both accounts (the default, only in safe mode.)
The locked files are things I had on my pc before a crash that I system recovered from. I did not think I had any of these old files, I thought they had been lost in the system recovery. However, while using malwarebytes in safe mode, I tried those old locked files with fileassassin and actually found all that old stuff. I was able to cut/paste the files into my current admin account, hoping to be able to open them there while not in fileassassin (where you can't open, you can only delete and move.)
However, when I try to open one, I get an error message that tells me the full name of the file, and then "is not available. Access is denied."
All of the tutorials I have seen seem to deal primarily with cracking passwords to someone elses admin account, or cracking an admin account that you forgot the password to, which hasn't helped me, since there is no password in question. I would just like to get into those folders, because I have a lot of old pictures and things in them that I want back. I was able to see inside the folders with fileassassin, but I can't get them out. So if anyone has any insight, ideas, or solutions, I would very much appreciate any help. Thanks :)
