I recently reinstalled windows xp on my machine. I want to be able to open some files that were used before the reinstall. Unfortunately, I cannot open the files because it says that my "Access is denied". I'm pretty sure I followed a tutorial online that allowed me to keep some files from the last install, but now I can't open the folders that they are in. I have administrator privaleges and removed the passwords from my other accounts before I did the reinstall. Any way to open these files?
