I secured folders (and the files under them) in Windows XP. Subsequently my system crashed and was not recoverable, so I had to reinstall Windows XP completely. Now, those secured folders are still protected but I cannot access or open any files under them. I'm getting "access denied." I tried taking ownership of the whole drive but am still getting an access denied message. Is there any other way I can regain access to my files? Thank you.
Interesting issue. You should look into
Winternal's ERD Commander
. This product has done wonders for me in the past, so that's where I'd start. Contact them first to see if their product can meet your needs.
