    After talking to Coolguy in a chat,

    the problem was solved by turning simple file sharing off, then granting administrators the ability to claim the files...

    It was explained by after the recovery, it gave me a new security ID so i had to reclaim the files as mine, before i could get to them.

    What is the exact error message you're receiving?

    Can you access the path via DOS?

Use a Linux OS to access these "unreachable" files. Try Ubuntu live CD, this will allow you to boot your PC to Linux without actually installing the OS to your hard drive. (you can download Ubuntu from WWW.ubuntu.org)

I have a Gateway Notebook W3203u with problems in my Windows OS (vista) and cannot get it to boot. I did not make a backup DVD as I didn't have an external DVD to make one. Now I have no way to recover my...


Mostly the company provided recovery DVD re-partitions or at least formats your hard disk. In both cases your loose your data. If you have some data you need try this workaround.
You need a Vista installation DVD.
Here is what you do

1. Boot from the dvd and select to install vista.
2. You will be notified that your old system will be backed up to a Windows Old Folder on C:\. Accept this and proceed with your installation. (DO NOT PERFORM ANY FORMATTING OR PARTITIONING or else you will loose your data and recovery.)
3. Finish the windows installation.
4. At this stage it is recommended to install a good anti-virus with latest virus definitions updates in case your problem was caused by a virus.
5. When done open my computer and open c:\ drive their you will find a windows old folder with all your old files back up. Back up your files to an external media ( A CD, DVD, or external hard disk)
6. In this folder search for the word recover. from the list you will find either a recovery disk creator software or your computers recovery software itself. I have tried many models and this program launches you when you trigger it here. If the CD/ DVD creator works for you well and good. You don't need to read any further just go on create your DVDs. Else look for Recovery and open the program and continue the wizard. Make a Full factory recovery. (Be sure to make a back up of your old files before doing this). Good Luck
