    Hi, I am running a machine with Windows XP on which I do video editing with Pinnacle Studio. Recently, I reformatted my C Drive, on which I'm not sure if Pinnacle was installed. However, the D drive, in which the video files were kept, was not touched. After I got the C drive back with the programs re-installed, I was having troubles accessing those video files. At first, Pinnacle detected them but then said that I was denied access. An hour or so later, the video files weren't even detected by Pinnacle. So I wxplored my D drive, and was trying to move the video files to a different folder so that maybe they would be detected, but all of the sudden they got locked up, and I can't move them to a different folder. Just some information: the video files have companion files, like SCN, SVD, and and Sony Split Index files. I have no clue what these are, but they got slpit up, so I'm thinking that's part of the problem. I'm trying to get all these files back into the same folder, but I get an error message saying : "Cannot move...Access Denied. Make sure the disck is not full or write-protected and that the files is not currently in use." They aren't in use, to my knowledge. I've tried using MoveOnBoot, which failed, and I'm sort of lost. If it helps, the program I uses to save the video files onto the disk is Sony GigaPocket ( I have a VAIO). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Right-Click on the file anc click properties
    Click on Security
    Click on everyone and select all the boxes underneath
