Folder locked - Access denied

By shep5_7 ·
I am the new IT guy for a company, the previous person left 8months ago, but i need to access his my documents folder to get documents. And of course I don't have his password and the account should be disabled anyway but i doubt that it is. How can i gain access to this folder?

You need to take control of the folders. Follow the instructions given in this thread here (you do not need to remove the drive, it can also be done 'in place':

Well my main problem is that I don?t have admin rights and so far have been unsuccessful in trying to add them. I have tried several of the suggestions and was not successful. I don?t have another pc where I can change the drive or make it a slave.

The link http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ is blocked.

I tried the Simple File Sharing but there is not an advanced tab.

The main problem was that I could not give myself Admin rights. I ended up calling the Help Desk and he still wouldn't give me access but he checked the folder for me. Thanks for all the help. Many of the suggestions probably would have worked if I had admin rights. Thanks again
