I desperately need some help...
I have a brandnew pc, with Windows XP home edition. I restored my backup of user data on a second drive (which I made "My Documents"). Ownership is fine and states my user id on all files.
Now, when I MOVE a file from one directory to another on that drive, no way I can access this file anymore. When COPYING it to the directory, it is no problem, and I can access it.
The problem is, i moved a few thousands of images from one directory to another on the drive, and as you can guess... Can't recuperate them anymore.
I tried booting safe mode, took ownership as administrator, but even then... Access Denied.
Still, when logged on under my own profile, files are my own.
this drives me nuts :(
I looked at Services. Indexing is not running. Something somehow is either locking these files after moving or I miss something altogether. Oh yes, it is Windows XP home edition, SP2. Latest updates installed.
Thanks for any help.
