Hi, I was recently having problems booting windows so I installed another copy over the previous one. But when I try to open my old documents, it does not let me, is there any way that I can open these folders?

Thanks

I took ownership of the folder on my account, but some files are still locked and I can't move them into a new folder. Not sure what to do.

Try logging in in Safe Mode and go into the administrator account and then try to access then that way. If you can and you have a floppy drive then save to floppies. If you can not then post back here we will try something else if possible.

I tried to do this but the files are still unaccessible. Not sure why since most of the other files in the folder were unlocked no problem.

Its strange because most of my MS Word files were unlocked fine, but there is 2 that weren't.

Not sure why.
