Hi all,

I have a minor problem, after my compie went crazy I decided it was time to format and re-install XP home however, I had a lot of information tha tI hadn't backed up on the drive so I decided to swap my two hard rives around using c: as d: though I cannot now get access to my documents and settings as they were password protected.

Is there anyway of getting the files back? Since it is home edition there isn't the same security options on right click any help would be much appreciated.

I believe you have to 'take ownership' of the files first click here for a how to do that in XP Home
