recover data file moved to system folder in error

  grungie 07:15 22 Feb 2004

I have moved 3 excel data files to the following folder by accident while doing a backup to floppy

I am unable to open/copy or move the files back
get response of
can not access read-only document

I presume that this folder is a special system folder as it has service pack sub folders.

please help me as I don't want to have to recreate the files again!

Right click the docs and select Properties. Untick Read Only. If you still can't move them then start your computer in safe mode and then try.

I have gone into safe mode and the files do not have the read-only option checked but the master folder does, select option remove this and include all sub folders and get response of access denied for action against my files! also tried the same attrib command in safe mode command prompt only. still access denied
