    i am running win7-home prem, sp1. hard disk crashed and was unbotable, rebuilt system with new drive, all fine. used old c:/ drive as slave and was able to view data subdirs. however when i clicked on doc&settings / users it was denied. permissions included admin group. if i upgrade to win7 prof, and create the admin group WILL I BE ABLE To VIEW DATA?

    any help would be appreciated. / SandorC

    Problemo! Permissions does niot include a user name, only gorups

    Everyone (group) denied access
    SYSTEM
    Administrators (group)

    Win7-home does not include groups

    Change the owner as directed. Then back on the Security Tab, Choose Edit and then Add to add your account name into the list.
