    HELP!!!!

    I'm dual booting XP and Windows 7 and whilst working in 7 I needed to access files from XP.

    SO...I changed permissions in 7 to gain access to files on the XP desktop

    NOW...I boot into XP and I'm presented with access denied to desktop - desktop folder shows no files/folders under XP

    PLEASE HELP ME CHANGE IT ALL BACK - I have important docments in there that I need to access under XP
