Hi,

Just created some backup (image) files using PQ Drive Image and saved them to a new hard drive formatted with NTFS. Now I get an "access denied" error when I try to move or copy them. How do I get access to these files to move them? Other file I've copied to the drive seem to be accessible.

I can't boot into safe mode. Pressing F8 repeatedly during boot up does not work. Is there a registry key or other some way that safe mode can be disables?

If your keyboard has an 'F-Lock' key, press it first.

If you can't get into safe mode tapping F8, just turn off your computer before it boots up. When you turn it back on windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the safe mode screen.

Thanks you also Augie65. The premature shutdown suggestion worked and I got into safe mode.

I got into the permissions and everyone had full control of the file. I guess I need to study up on NTFS permissions before I use NTFS formatting. Since it was a new drive I reformatted it in good old FAT32 and everything works. Thanks for the help.
