lost ownership of a whole drive

  intense 11:01 01 May 2008

I was running vista ultimate but have finally decided to go back to XP. After reformatting my C: drive I went to access my documents on the D: drive and they are all there but 'i dont have the permissions to access them' I need to restore my previous permissions using XP... Can anyone help with this?

This works the other way round, you might be able to work the same principles with XP. click here

hi asnskyber
Just looked at the tutorial but it's for Xp to Vista not the other way round, if you remember vista doesn't have the security tab in folder properties... any more ideas before i format it and lose 80gigs!
