    Write-Protected

    I had windows xp home before, and I had set files to private. After I upgraded to to XP PRo, I used same username for the new user name.

    Now, my files are set to Write-protected and I can not access them.
    So, I am went ahead and tried Knoobix, and it works for me. I can access the files in that folder through Knoobix. Is it possible to change the folder settings so I can view the files while I am using Windows Xp PRo.


    I was thinking of moving files to the new user from Old user through Knoobix, I read the tool has been taken and it might mess up the data.


    If it is not possible, maybe then a way to delete the files, sicne they are just taking up space.
