    I just made a reinstallation of WIN XP on a new formatted hard drive. I keep all my documents on a separate drive so that’s its easy for my to do a operation like that.

    But now I can’t get access to some of the folders and files on my document drive. I can see all the folders and files but some are just like locked. When I tryk to open a folder or a file I get error messages from Win XP saying “D:\pictures is not accessible.

    What can i do to open these folders and files? It a big problem – and my latest back is 3 months old :eek:(

    Plese help if anybody knows this problem and possibly the solution.
