that post is so old, it may not apply to whatever OS you are currently running...What operating system are you running and does it give you an error message? We do need a little more to go on.

OS

The OS is XP pro after i did what was mentioned in the old post, i get:
Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item. this is applied only to the files inside the folder

You have to ensure

by seanferd In reply to fileacessdenied help plz

that while you are taking ownership of the folder, that permissions are inherited by the child objects (the files). Owning the folder does not automatically mean that you own the files. Check permissions on the files themselves and see.

You mention the file names are green text. They may be encrypted, then, and no matter what ownership you take, you will have to log in with the original owner's credentials on the original machine and OS, I do believe.

NOT POSSIBLE??

i'VE REINSTALL WINDOWS, THE OWNER ON THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE OS WAS ADMINISTRATOR AS IT IS NOW. BUT IT SEEMS DURING THE INSTALLATION THAT THE ACTUAL USER ADMINISTRATOR IS DIFFERENT FROM THE OLD ONE

Right - you have to consider the account, not the person.

by seanferd In reply to NOT POSSIBLE??

This is, of course, assuming that the files were, in fact, <i>encrypted</i>. You know how Windows compressed files show up in blue? Maybe encrypted files show up in green, I don't know. I have never used Window encryption. Ask the original person who saved these files in their account.

But have you tried to make sure that you have actually taken ownership of the <i>files</i> in the folder?

If that fails, someone may be able to tell you how to re-create the original account so that the files may be accessed. You would need the original username and password for the account.

You may be able to

by seanferd In reply to in this case how to?

simply change your current Administrator account login to use you old username & password, and try it that way.

Otherwise, now that we have firmly identified the problem, I'll have to leave it to someone else who knows how to fix this to help. I could research the issue, but I wouldn't want to make an error which would irrevocably cost you the information you are trying to recover.

already tried

My old username was administrator like it is now, how do i change current administrator name?
