Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I had Windows Vista and it inexplicably crashed (imagine that). So I searched the retailers far and wide for a copy of xp and to much delight I found a copy of Professional. Well thats all fine and dandy but my E: drive says my access is denied. I know it has to do with all the ownership and atrribute BS that has to do with vista but I was wondering if there was any way to bypass that because I have very critical info and programs that I need. Please help my ease my mind!!! By the way I'm technically savvy so use your "gifted" words freely!
Check Sharing & User Permissions Vista loved to set user access rights on drives. This forum may help.
If this does not help let me know. I will help you do it the old DOS way. Good Luck.
