I have made the default administrator account password protected and the files not accessible by others. I now realize that my user administrator account is unable to access the files in the default administrators "Document and Settings" folder. I would like to know how to reset the restrictions I've put in place on the default administrators account as I have used it for a long time and there are files I can now no longer access. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Bob1189 :eek:

I think this may be my problem, too, although as far as I can tell, mine is limited to the D drive. When I attempted to save a Word doc to a CD, I got the following message: You do not have access to the folder D:\ See your administrator for access to this folder. I am the admin, the only current user (profile), and no longer have a network set up. The D drive works fine when downloading music. :confused:

Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

I resolved my problem by requiring a login at system startup and was able to login as administrator allowing me to access the files. I'm working on determining what needs to be dragged to the shared documents folder on my machine so all users can acces it. You may need to do that also to allow access. Login as administrator and drag the D: drive to the shared documents folder. HTH Bob1189

Try saving the word document to 'my documents', then right click it and 'send to' the d: drive. I've never been able to save straight to an optical drive...
