    I have successfully completed a repair install but not all of the old user accounts are accessible using windows explorer. Two accounts plus the old administrator account show 'Access Denied'. I would like to retrieve the accounts' files and know the old passwords. I can't even delete them.
    Can anybody help, please?

    You need to be able to log in to one of the accounts as an administrator first. Can you do that?

    Dan,
    I can log on using the post-repair administrator's account, yes.
