    Unable to open file with Windows XP after opening with Knopp

    I am Unable to open file with Windows XP after opening it with Knoppix. The ownership of the file says Knoppix.

    The error message I get when i try to open with Windows says "the the file is not accessible. Access is denied."

    How do I change and what do I change the ownership to so that I can open the file in Windows again?

    Thank you for any help.

    Newbie with foot shot off.

    Looks like a file permissions problem. Also happens e.g. when transferring a hard disk from one windows installation to another. It's usually wiser to fix this kind of problem from within Windows first.

    Take a look at this link and see if it works: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;308421

    By searching the error message on google, you can also find a number of Windows sites where this problem and the fixes are discussed.

    Thanks Jacky,

    "For Microsoft Windows XP Professional, you need to disable Simple File Sharing, in order to see the Security tab. To disable simple file sharing, follow these steps: Click Start, and then click My Computer. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab. In the Advanced Settings section, clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box. Click OK."[/url]
