Friend's Dell Dimension 4600 (piece of over-priced junk) what to sh*t and so now I'm trying to fix it. The recovery discs that Dell provides only work within Windows. (defeats the purpose if you ask me) On bootup, it gives me an error about accessing the System folder, on safe mode as well. I'm trying to back up her files before I kick the thing clean. I hooked up the hdd and couldn't access her name. (her documents and settings junk). I'm currently attempting to take ownership of the folder, but I keep getting this error on a lot of files. Also, accessing the drive is very slow. So far, I've recovered 2 of her files, but the rest are being a pain. I'm sure the files are just fine and this is merely a stupid MS software issue. Any suggestions on how I can recover the other files?
