Can these files be copied to a FAT32 drive which knows nothing of NTFS permissions? Do you still have the original media to which they were moved from the old drive?

That's about the only thing I can think of trying.

That might work... If you can get a Windows computer with a FAT32 drive, and the original media, you can try and set the date back to 99, and see if it lets you access them. Just make sure you don't "Windows Update"! :eek:

Also, discovered that Encryption could not be removed from these files (all dated 2/11/2002)
Are you saying you think these files are encrypted? If so , I think recovery is slim without the original encryption certificate and key.

Original media is long gone (hard drive in very old PC, now recycled). Cannot copy or move files to any location due to 'access denied' error. And, files may have become encrypted as default setting for either current or former drive; can't tell which. If that is default setting for NT 4.1 or W2K Pro, then, it happened as consequence of saving or moving info to encrypted drive.

My research seems to confirm the issue of original key.
