Hi everybody!!

Recently i backed up my 'My Documents' folder on a dvd-r and then re-installed my xp. Now i copied my backup in to the computer and wanted to open the 'My Document' folder that i have previously backed up and it comes out with a error saying that access is denied. I think i know what went wrong, because i was the administrator and my 'My Document' folder was restricted from other users or something like that, thats why it wont allow me to access it.
Is ther any way that i can remove this restriction and access my folder.

Plzz help!!

Try to log in as administrator in safe mode and change the permissions on the folder.

When you copy files to CDs they are automatically saved as read only. Now they are back on your hard drive right click select properties and change from read only to archive. Think thats the right way round.
