Files recovery after format
Alright I need someone's help here. Iíve just had a problem after windowís SP3 installation crashed. It didnít had time to finish and at the time didnít considered trying to re-install but next thing I know I canít boot even in safe mode so I got a bootdisk for WinXP and started formatting my PC. So Iím back with a Ďíworkingíí computer and I still see all of my old directories but canít access them even when Iím using an administrator account. Every time I try to access a file from before the incident it says (path \ file name is not accessible. Access is denied). It would really help if I could save some of these files.
Any ideasÖ

Thanks.

did u repaired your window or reinstalled it. If you repaired it then just go to the "Documents and settings" in the C:\ drive there you just select the user you used to login before crash there you select the My document and Desktop to get all the old files.

Thanks for hints, I finally managed to access them by changing permissions for the files.
